Description - A semi evergreen azalea with bright red semi double flowers set against dark green foliage in spring and then in late summer. As the second flowering starts the leaves change to a purple bronze colour giving an extra interest to the plant through the autumn and winter months. In colder or more exposed areas this plant can lose some or all of its leaves in winter.
Encore® Azaleas flower in Spring, Summer and Autumn. Traditional azaleas are finished after their spring blooms, but Encore® continues to brighten landscapes with striking colours and lush foliage, season after season. They are low maintenance and require no deadheading and little pruning to retain good form. If pruning is desired, execute a single pruning immediately after the spring flush of blooms.They are attractive to pollinators...butterflies love their vibrant colour and funnel shaped blooms.
** Requires Ericaceous compost **
