Azalea – Perfecto Mundo Double Pink
Perfecto Mundo Double Pink azalea blooms on old wood in spring, then later, on new wood. As such, it should only be pruned immediately after its spring bloom. Even if it does't need pruning, it's not a bad practice to give the plant a light trim after its spring bloom, which encourages new growth - the more new growth it puts on after that spring bloom, the more rebloom you'll get.
A note on hardiness: Perfecto Mundo Double Pink azalea is hardy to USDA zone 6b, and is better suited to milder coastal areas of zone 6b than harsh Midwestern sites. If you wish to plant it in zone 6b, select a protected location and mulch well. Do not fertilize after mid-July in these areas.
If you do wish to fertilize, do so in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge, and then again after the spring bloom is complete. Use a rose fertilizer.
Azaleas are a classic choice for landscaping, especially planted in front of homes and on banks. Planting a reblooming azalea like Perfecto Mundo Double Pink means you get more flowers, however you wish to incorporate them into your landscape or garden.
