Azalea Bloom-A-Thon® Lavender Description
All the classic, colorful beauty of an azalea, but with modern day reblooming that brings you more of what you love – flowers! Bloom-A-Thon® Lavender reblooming azalea is a neat mound of purple, trumpet-like blooms, each sweetly freckled with pink. It blooms in spring when other azaleas do, then comes back in mid-summer for a repeat performance. Why settle for an azalea that only blooms once?!
This medium-sized reblooming azalea is a nice choice for any landscape application, such as planting around your home, as a hedge, or edging for a bed. It’s also very nice mixed with perennials and other flowering plants. However you plant it, you’ll enjoy this shade tolerant classic and the color it brings to your home.

Soil: Bloom-A-Thon azaleas require the same conditions as other azaleas: cool, moist, acidic soil. Good drainage is essential.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part shade (4-6 hours/day). The hotter the climate, the more beneficial shade becomes.
Water: Moderate moisture; Looks and blooms best when it does not experience any kind of drought stress
Space: 4-5' apart
Fertilizing: Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring and again after the first bloom for best rebloom.
Winterizing: A 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch is recommended. If you wish to attempt growing it in colder areas, plant only in protected spots.
Maintenance: For best rebloom, give the whole plant a light trim after its initial flowering in spring. This encourages new growth. Do not prune before bloom or you will remove the flower buds.
