I love these! I planted them along the front walkway. The rebloom in summer is so long and amazing! Not fast growers, but instead, beautiful show-ers.
Bloom-A-Thon® Lavender Reblooming Azalea Rhododendron x
- Part Sun to Sun
This variety is no longer available from Proven Winners®. Alternatives include: Perfecto Mundo® Double Purple.
Why settle for just a week or two of flowers when you can enjoy months of blooms?
This enchantress of an azalea is twice as nice as other varieties! Large flowers appear in April, then rebloom in early July, continuing through fall until hard frost. Even high summer temperatures don't stop this beauty from producing loads of late summer and fall flowers.
The evergreen foliage is disease resistant, and maintains excellent color year-round. Flowering lasts for 4-6 weeks in spring, and then another 12-16 weeks in summer and fall.Continuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingHeat TolerantSmall or Miniature

Grouped or in mass plantings, mixed borders, containers, specimen plant. Good for foundation plantings or woodland gardens.Maintenance Notes:
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.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.Bloom-A-Thon® Lavender Rhododendron x 'RLH1-4P19' USPP 21,476
