Hi Steven - I don't think an azalea will like a hanging basket.  Fushcias sometimes do alright with a bit of shade - otherwise why not try with foliage plants like ferns and ivies?

Hallo Steven, I agree with chicky, also, azaleas only flower for a short time in Spring. Can definitely recommend fuchsias, there are some lovely hanging ones, ask in your garden centre. They won't mind a bit of sun in the evening.

The Indian Azalea may tolerate a basket as long as you water it assiduously.
