Several weeks ago I ordered 6 Bloom-a-Thon white Azaleas. 4 of them arrived with leaves that were brown at the tips and they have only gotten worse. The leaves are stunted and the plant is now almost completely dead. The 2 that I received which did not have brown leaves are doing fine.
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 7 - 9
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.
My Current Zone
Twice as nice as other azaleas!
Why settle for just a week or two of flowers when you can enjoy up to five months of blooms? Large flowers appear in April, then rebloom in early July, continuing through fall until hard frost. Even high summer temperatures don't stop this enchantress from producing loads of late summer and fall flowers. The semi-evergreen foliage is disease resistant, and maintains excellent color year-round. Flowering lasts for 4-6 weeks in spring, and then another 12-16 weeks in summer and fall.Continuous Bloom or RebloomerHeat TolerantSmall or Miniature

Grouped or in mass plantings, mixed borders, containers, specimen plant. Good for foundation plantings or woodland gardens.Maintenance Notes:
For best rebloom, give Bloom-A-Thon azaleas a light, all-over trim when their spring bloom fades. This encourages new growth, which is what will be responsible for producing the flower buds for the rebloom.
If you are growing Bloom-A-Thon azalea at the colder end of its hardiness range, avoid late season planting, which leaves the plant under-prepared for winter's challenges. Do not fertilize any Bloom-A-Thon azalea after mid-July. Like all azaleas and rhododendrons, Bloom-A-Thon reblooming azaleas benefit significantly from a 2-3" thick layer of shredded bark mulch.Fun Facts:
Bloom-A-Thon azaleas are semi-evergreen, which means they keep the foliage at the tips of their branches all year, dropping their inner leaves in winter.Bloom-A-Thon® White Rhododendron x 'RLH1-3P3' USPP 21,512
