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 Sunset® Encore Azalea
Rhododendron ‘Roblen’ PP16248
The Autumn Sunset® Encore Azalea is very showy with its fiery red flowers which bloom repeatedly during both spring and fall. While this azalea can withstand a little shade, full sun is recommended for the beautiful, showy blooms to look their best.
This beautiful compact shrub is often used as foundation plantings, grouped in a bed for color, and is popular as show pieces around the property either in the ground as decoration or in containers.
