Azalea Bloom-A-Thon® Red Description
Azaleas are the stars of the spring shrub garden with their colorful display of dazzling flowers. Now you can enjoy this flowering shrub in spring, summer & fall with up to 5 months of bloom.
Bloom-A-Thon azaleas are a new series of multi-season evergreen Azaleas. Double Red begins to bloom in April. During the heat of summer it cycles into another flush of blooms for 12-16 weeks lasting well into a fall.
Dark green, disease resistant medium sized evergreen leaves look pretty year round. Sturdy, dense, and well-branched upright growth habit reaches up to 5' tall and 4' wide.
Maintenance is a breeze. No need to prune off old flowers. This greatly improved azalaea is self-cleaning. Only prune to shape plant if desired.
Azaleas are adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions, but grow best under conditions of light shade (morning sun is best), adequate moisture and fertile, well-drained soil.

Soil: Fertile, well-drained organic soil. Acidic soil is necessary for azaleas, with an ideal pH around 5.5 to 6.2.
Light: Filtered to partial sun -- Part sun to dappled shade is ideal, and the hotter your climate, the more shade becomes necessary.
Water: Azaleas are shallow rooted, and will need regular watering in times of extreme heat. Adding a 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch beneath them will help keep the soil moist and cool. Do not use rock mulches around azaleas.
Fertilizing: Reblooming azaleas benefit from fertilizing after their spring bloom. You may use a rose fertilizer or a rhododendron/azalea fertilizer. Never fertilize reblooming azaleas after late July.
Winterizing: Planting in a protected area from harsh winter winds will help prevent winter damage. Plants should be mulched for winter.
Maintenance & Pruning: Plants may be pruned or lightly trimmed after their spring bloom to encourage new growth and a better rebloom.
