So Azaleas are toxic to dogs if they ingest it. As little as 0.2% of an animal’s body weight can result in poisoning.When ingested, clinical signs include gastrointestinal signs, abnormal heart rate, heart arrhythmias, weakness, hypotension), and things like depression, tremors, transient blindness, seizures, coma, etc.Because of this, I would induce vomiting with the peroxide. You can give up to 3 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide and then walk him around for a couple minutes to get it foamy and get him to vomit. If it doesn't happen within 10 minutes, you can repeat the dose once more.If you're unable to get him to vomit, you may want to consider having him seen by an emergency vet so they can get the flowers out of his system.I hope this helps.

He's sleeping now, and seems fine.

If you'd prefer to monitor him and watch for signs of problems, that would be acceptable. Signs of problems don't always show up right away and can take up to 48 hours to appear.
