Love azaleas but want blooms spring through fall? Azalea Encore© EmbersTM offers up striking orange-red flowers that emerge in spring, followed by a heavy repeat flush in summer and fall. The bright tubular flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators, especially if you plant in groups of at least 3 to 5 plants for a big block of color.
