Rhododendron 'Roblet' PP25072

 

Azaleas have been a staple in many gardens--especially in the southern states--unless you garden in full sun. But now, thanks to Buddy Lee, the inventor of the Autumn Encore Azalea, we can enjoy all the versatility and beauty of the azalea in a full-sun setting. All Autumn Encore Azaleas happily grow in full sun and bloom twice a year, spring and fall. Autumn Sunburst® grows compactly and sports profuse clusters of small blooms in spring and fall. Coral pink flowers edged with white contrast with the shrubs dark green foliage. Nicely sized for a smaller garden.

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.
