Rhododendron 'Robleo' PP#19899


Gorgeous pale pink flowers appear from spring until fall on this low maintenance, long-blooming evergreen shrub. The 'Autumn Belle®' Encore azalea is both disease and pest resistant, it can handle heat, and it will not lose its foliage in the cold. This Encore azalea loves the full sun and giving this azalea plenty of sun means there will be more flowers in the spring. 'Autumn Belle's' habit is upright and robust, and bi-color blooms are borne in clusters along the stems. An intermediate grower, reaching 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide.  

Azaleas bring your garden a lot of color in the spring, so they have become popular to use as foundation plantings, clustered into a grouping in a garden bed, or even as show pieces around the garden or in containers.

Joseph's Take

All Encores have many uses in the landscape, mainly because they are proficient bloomers and we all love color!  When I'm choosing an Encore for a landscape, I usually choose one that will look nice next its surrounding plants as well as any architectural structures that may come into play.  All Encore Azaleas have beautiful flowers, I have always loved the purple varieties.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Camellia, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, and Azalea as they all prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting these varieties.
