In a perfect world, azaleas would bloom for months instead of just weeks and have big, full flowers with pure and true colors. That's exactly what Perfecto Mundo® azaleas do. This innovative series comes from award-winning plant breeder Dr. Tom Ranney of NCSU.

Perfecto Mundo® Double Purple azalea brings a deeply saturated purple to the line, along with ruffled, double flowers. Look for them to begin their colorful bloom in spring, along with other azaleas, then after a brief rest to create new growth, put out new flowers from mid/late summer until frost. 

Top reasons to grow Perfecto Mundo® Double Purple azalea:

  • Reblooming azalea provides months of blooms, not merely weeks.
  • Resistant to lacebug, a pest that can be problematic in certain areas.
  • Grows in sun or part shade

Uses Notes:

Azaleas are a classic choice for landscaping, especially planted in front of homes and on banks. Planting a reblooming azalea like Perfecto Mundo Double Purple means you get more flowers, however you wish to incorporate them into your landscape or garden.

Maintenance Notes:

Perfecto Mundo Double 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. 

A note on hardiness: Perfecto Mundo Double Purple azalea is hardy to USDA zone 6b, and is better suited to milder coastal areas of zone 6b than harsh Midwestern sites. If you wish to plant it in zone 6b, select a protected location and mulch well. Do not fertilize after mid-July in these areas. 

If you do wish to fertilize, do so in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge, and then again after the spring bloom is complete. Use a rose fertilizer.
