Regular price $35.00 Sale

Rhododendron ‘Conlef’

Derived from the Southern Indica and Kurume, this encore hybrid is native to Louisiana. The encores' are the most sun tolerant of the azalea family. The Cheer Encore is part of the small encore azalea class that is a softy with ruffled single blooms twice a year. Rosy cheeked pink, these beauties make excellent combination designs and work well independently as accents, foundations, or edge ornaments. 

The Cheer Encore is compact, known to attract butterflies, and very little pruning is required, deeming this plant a low maintenance variety.
