Perfecto Mundo® Reblooming Azalea
It's time for some new azaleas.
Azalea lovers are spoiled for choice these days, but for those that demand an azalea that truly does it all, there’s the Perfecto Mundo® series. Developed in North Carolina by one of North America’s most innovative plant breeders, Perfecto Mundo azaleas combine outstanding spring bloom with a lush, dense habit, pure, saturated colors, pest and disease resistance, and flowers that put on an applause-worthy repeat performance in late summer/fall.
Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs undertook the most extensive evaluation and trial in their nearly 20 year history to select only the very best from hundreds of individual plants to make the Perfecto Mundo series as perfect as possible. And we’re not done yet! Each year, the series grows to include new colors and flower forms.
If easy-care color is what you seek for your landscape or garden, don’t settle for one-note azaleas; go for the total package – Perfecto Mundo azaleas.
Watch as Dr. Judson LeCompte, our New Product Development Assistant Manager, details the trial, evaluation, and selection process for Perfecto Mundo azaleas.
