Autumn Sunset Encore Azalea
Rhododendron ‘Roblen’ PP16248
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 Sunset Encore is part of the small encore azalea class that is a hopeless romantic with single and semi-double blooms twice a year. Sunbathed in red with hints of orange, these beauties make excellent combination designs and work well independently as accents, foundations, or edge ornaments.
The Sunset Encore is compact, known to attract butterflies, and very little pruning is required, deeming this plant a low maintenance variety.
