Autumn Bonfire Encore Azalea

Regular price $35.00 Sale

Rhododendron ‘Robleza’ PP29770 - TM

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 Bonfire Encore is part of the small encore azalea class that is a magnetic delight with single and semi-double blooms twice a year. Red by night, magenta by day, these beauties make excellent combination designs and work well independently as accents, foundations, or edge ornaments. 

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