Development Story

The Bloom ’N Again® Azaleas were developed by Mr. James Harris, a backyard breeder and hobbyist, with a keen eye for unique and unusual characteristics. These azaleas have been carefully selected for their repeat blooming habits and cold hardiness. The broad range of brilliant colors, flower shape and form make them desirable for any garden.

All the Bloom ’N Again® Azaleas are evergreen shrubs good for planting in mass or integrated into a hedge or shrub border. With little need to prune, they are perfect for a naturalized area such as shade or woodland gardens. Dependent on growing conditions, most of the Bloom ’N Again® Azaleas start their fall blooming season in late September.

Care & Planting

Care & Planting

Azaleas prefer light shade and well-drained, slightly acidic soil, rich with organic matter. Dig hole two times the width of the container. If the soil appears too sandy or is heavy clay, amend with organic matter. Remove from the container and place in hole so that the top of the root ball is slightly above the ground level. Backfill. Water. Mulch. Keep moist until established.
