Rhododendron Hybrid ‘Robleze’ PP32506

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 Starburst Encore is part of the large encore azalea class that is the star of the show with single blooms twice a year. Autumn Starburst features coral pink blooms with large white ruffled edges, single to semi-double form blooms that measure 2.5 inches across. These beauties make excellent combination designs and work well independently as accents, foundations, or edge ornaments. Potential to occasionally produce solid purple blooms.

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