Rhododendron ‘Robleza’ PP29770

 

A fast-growing but dwarf azalea, the new 'Autumn Bonfire®' glows with tight clusters of true red, semi-double and single blooms in spring, summer and fall. 'Autumn Bonfire' holds its bright green foliage year-round. Good for the front of the border, or planted en masse.  A bit bigger at maturity than 'Autumn Fire'. 

Joseph's Take

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 Azalea, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, or Camellia 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.
