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.
Autumn Bonfire® Encore Azalea
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'.
