The beautiful blooms azalea bushes provide are often associated with springtime. But, fortunately, Encore Azaleas rebloom in the spring, late summer, AND fall.
There are thousands of azalea species, hybrids, and cultivars, but only 31 are Encore Azaleas. Development of these special hybrid blends started in the ’80s. As a result, we get to enjoy these showy flowers several times throughout the year!
