Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Rhododendron is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Prefers slightly acidic well drained soils. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

After the spring blooming period, these amazing azaleas begin growing new shoots and start blooming into full flower in mid-summer. The Encore® Series are known for their richness of color as well as the foliage and overall vigor. **Experience here has shown the spring flowers to be more lilac in color with summer and fall flowers more pinkish. It may be related to the Oklahoma heat, but a definite flower color change has been our experience.
