Azaleas are traditionally thought of as spring-blooming shrubs. Fall blooming does occur in some evergreen azaleas but is rare. Now, after 17 years of breeding and testing more than 10,000 seedlings, a new evergreen azalea series introduces plants that consistently bloom twice during the season. Encore hybrids are grown similar to all azaleas, except they bloom best in full sun. After blooming with the other azaleas in spring, they bloom again on new wood from midsummer through fall, until temperatures drop to 22° F. In some areas, this means they'll still be blooming as late as December. Fall is a good time to plant.
