Why river sand? Azaleas like to be moist.

I responded to your pm. Ultimately, preserve low branching and grow them out. That is where taper comes from in Azaleas. Reduces shoots to two at every opportunity. Be patient. Get it into a more open soil (I think. Can't tell for sure.)

I am using pure river sand for the soil. I notice it gives more benefits to my plants. Can you please help me? Can you please sketch a plan for this?

Thank you

What are you using for soil?  There looks to be some potential at the nebari if it is managed well over the next few growing seasons.

The wire, particularly the larger wire, seems mostly ineffective (see the tie-wire binding the trunks closer together and the taller trunk being mostly straight).  The coils are too tightly placed and that reduces its strength.  The lower "trunk" doesn't seem to harmonize well with the rest of the tree going off at nearly a right angle.  (Horizontal lines are usually best avoided.)  Also, you need to determine which of the branches you want to keep where they emanate from the trunk at the same location.

Ultimately, this tree is in need of lots of time spent thickening up and gaining interest.
