Rhododendron – Bloom-A-Thon® Red
Fun Facts Bloom-A-Thon azaleas are semi-evergreen, which means that they keep the leaves at the ends of their branches but lose nearly all of their inner leaves.
Small / Miniature
For best rebloom, give Bloom-A-Thon azaleas a light, all-over trim when their spring bloom fades. This encourages new growth, which is what will be responsible for producing the flower buds for the rebloom.
If you are growing Bloom-A-Thon azalea at the colder end of its hardiness range, avoid late season planting, which leaves the plant under-prepared for winter's challenges. Do not fertilize any Bloom-A-Thon azalea after mid-July. Like all azaleas and rhododendrons, Bloom-A-Thon reblooming azaleas benefit significantly from a 2-3" thick layer of shredded bark mulch.
Grouped or in mass plantings, mixed borders, containers, specimen plant. Good for foundation plantings or woodland gardens.
