In a dream world, azaleas would bloom for months instead of just weeks, have big, full flowers with pure and true colors, and resist pests and diseases, and you're in luck because that's exactly what Perfecto Mundo™ azaleas do! This innovative series from award winning plant breeder Dr. Tom Ranney of NCSU combines peerless performance with lacebug resistance, a pest that threatens azaleas in many areas. Perfecto Mundo™ azalea is the series debut, a neat, rounded shrub that's covered with double orchid purple in spring, when other azaleas bloom, but then after a brief rest, begins blooming again in mid summer and continues all the way through frost. Perfecto Mundo™ Purple azalea blooms on old wood in spring, then later, on new wood. As such, it should only be pruned immediately after its spring bloom. Even if it does't need pruning, it's not a bad practice to give the plant a light trim after its spring bloom, which encourages new growth - the more new growth it puts on after that spring bloom, the more rebloom you'll get. Add them to your landscape in mass for a color show that just won?t quit!
