My azaleas blooming a second time? But not Encore's?
I had some azaleas planted this February. They bloomed like usual in TN around April/Mid March. Then in June I saw the buds form as they were brown. Now its the end of July and the Azalea buds have swelled and have the pink tips, and a few have bloomed! To add to that the whole bush did not have those big pear sized buds, as only roughly 10% of the bush has buds that are ready to burst. Don't get me wrong I love the pink/red blooms. But, its about August now, will they form buds for next season, they already used that extra energy to bloom this second flush. Even though its a few buds, They were in the same spot were 2-3 blossoms formed and emerged. I really want to know if they can make a third set of buds.
