Your Yard is a Canvas -- Paint Your Masterpiece If you love spring-blooming azaleas, you can enjoy this explosion of color season after season with Encore Azaleas. Each of the 30 Encore Azalea varieties begins their performance with the spring flowering season. Once this “first act” of blooming concludes, new shoots begin to grow and set buds. The Encore Azalea’s “second act” opens when these buds begin blooming. This unique bloom season continues through fall, the curtain dropping with the onset of cold weather. But, the show goes on. As an "encore," these exceptional azaleas flower again with traditional spring azaleas and the process starts over.Encore Azalea, the world’s best-selling multi-season blooming azalea, revolutionized the azalea industry. Encore Azaleas will colorfully impact your garden for years to come. Invented by plant breeder Robert E. "Buddy" Lee of Independence, La., the evergreen Encore® Azaleas enjoy more sun than traditional azaleas, but offer the same easy care. Lee first envisioned Encore Azaleas in the early 1980s when he found a tray of azalea cuttings blooming in the summer sun at his small Louisiana azalea nursery. Inspired, he began crossing traditional spring-blooming azaleas with the rare Taiwanese summer-blooming azalea, Rhododendron oldhamii.
