Buy Rhododendron Encore Sunburst ('Roblet') (PBR) twice flowering evergreen azalea:

This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained, humus-rich, acid soil or ericaceous compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May, then again in July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Lashings of soft pink blooms, each with a fine white trim around the petals edge, appear in late spring and early summer. For most azaleas, that would be the end of the display, but this new, repeat-flowering form will then go on to produce a second (less prolific) flush of flowers that can open intermittently from midsummer to early autumn. Its long flowering season and lustrous green foliage make it a fine addition to pots or borders.

  • Garden care: Avoid planting too deeply. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of leaf mould around the base of the plant each spring.
