Description

Encore® Azalea are cultivars that bloom not only in the spring but also in the summer and fall.  There are two sizes dwarf and Intermediate.  The dwarf cultivars reach a maximum height of 3 1/2' and make a good choice for the middle of a border.  Intermediate cultivars reach a height of 5' tall and work well in foundation plantings or the backs of borders.
