Description

This new addition to the Perfecto Mundo azalea series has everyone all fired up - it's got the bright red color azalea fans crave! Look for its fabulous red flowers to begin in spring, gracing the season with weeks of color. After a brief rest, it comes roaring back with waves of blooms in late summer through fall. The true-red flowers contrast with the deep green foliage. Coupled with its appealing, dense habit, this plant will be irresistible to landscapers and home gardeners alike.
