Abbey's Re-View Azalea
Much more heat-tolerant than 'P.J.M.,' it's the ideal size for foundation, hedge, and driveway planting.
In early spring, this broadleaf evergreen sets big clusters of bright blooms among the dark blue-green foliage. Very heavy-blooming, it puts on a huge show, first in spring and again in early fall in most climates. Reaching 6 to 8 feet high and wide, this is a fine Rhododendron to use as a hedge, privacy screen, foundation accent, or border standout.
'Abbey's Re-View' was developed by Georgia plantsman Roger Flotta, so it comes by its heat resistance honestly. Compact and rounded, it packs a lot of greenery and blooms into its space. Very pest- and disease-resistant, it is a carefree accent for sun to partial shade. Consider it behind more compact varieties, such as lavender-flowered 'Elsie Lee,' or alongside similar-sized Azaleas such as 'Northern Hi-Lights,' which shares its fragrance with 'Abbey's Re-View.' It is also a great choice for a mass planting.
Reblooming Azaleas are few and far between, and 'Abbey's Re-View' is especially valuable for its stellar parentage and lovely blooms. Trouble-free and easy to grow, it's a good choice for many climates, particularly the warm southern and southwestern regiions. Zones 5-9.
