Autumn Belle Encore Azalea

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Rhododendron ‘Robleo’ PP19899

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 Autumn Belle is part of the large encore azalea class that is a show-off with some uniquely ruffled blooms twice a year. Pretty in pink, these beauties make excellent combination designs and work well independently as accents, foundations, or edge ornaments. 

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

Deer may browse.
