The Q&A Archives: Encore Azaleas

Question: I was wondering when the encore Azaleas were to bloom again. We planted some this spring and never got a bloom. I gave them azalea food but should I be feeding them regularly? Do they take miracle grow? Anyway, We bought these for the continuous blooms and haven't seen any. Thanks for any help.

Answer: Encore Azalea's bloom right around Mother's Day (mid-May) and bloom a second time 6-8 weeks after the first flush of blooms. If yours failed to bloom in May it could be that they are suffering a little transplant shock. They will bloom once the roots are well established. Feeding once in spring is all that they require. Enjoy!
