Evergreen Azaleas That Bring Year-Round Beauty

evergreen azalea - encore azalea

I am very accustomed to seeing evergreen azaleas as they are very common in the south. You see a lot of these shrubs that have lived beyond their lifespan and/or haven’t been maintained and don’t look so great anymore. They also only bloom in spring. Sometimes the bloom is no longer prolific. (Healthy azalea bushes have flowers that pretty much coat it and offer a stunning display in spring.) Older plants can also be prone to disease that doesn’t kill them, but can sure make them look ugly. Enter the new and improved azaleas! I've put together a list of my favorite evergreen azalea varieties.

 

Evergreen Azaleas That Bring Year-Round Beauty With Three Seasons of Blooms

If you haven’t rediscovered azaleas, you are missing out! There are some phenomenal new varieties with loads of different colors and sizes, including dwarf and semi-dwarf. They are also disease resistant, sun tolerant, and easy to grow. Many are cold hardy into zone 6. Some exciting news for many northerners! Although, the best part is that these new azaleas are rebloomers. Many of them bloom in spring and rebloom in summer and fall. Awesome, huh?! My favorite series of these reblooming azalea types are the Encore Azaleas. So what are Encore Azaleas? They are hardy evergreen azaleas that bring year-round beauty!
