Encore - other everblooming? - azalea size
Hello! Is there a variety of everblooming azalea that is either dwarf, spreading or generally stays smaller than their ordinary-sized, old-fashioned cousins? I've moved into a patio home and would love to plant Encore in my small backyard (approx 20 x 18 feet, with a 10 x 10 patio). But I need smaller foundation plantings. If Encores aren't right, would someone recommend a good dwarf azalea variety? (I'd love to alternate red and white or coral and white.) My soil is mostly red clay and moist - but I don't know yet how it will behave during the long, hot and dry South Carolina (USA) summers. My yard is mostly/part shade and I'm either zone 7 or 8, depending which map you consult!
