The Bloom-A-Thon Lavender Azalea by Proven Winners ColorChoice is a very rare purple flowering azalea. This shrub not only blooms in a color that is hard to find, but it also puts on a show by blooming for over 5 months throughout the spring, summer and fall! Plus the foliage is semi-evergreen. Meaning the outer leaves on the branches stay green year long, and the inner leaves fall during the winter.

The bushes are fantastic in mass plantings to have color all season and year long. We also enjoy these as flowering evergreen hedges and borders. These azaleas also make great plants for garden planters due to the fact of the long bloom time and year long foliage.

These shrubs are disease resistant and take minimal care in order to have beautiful shrubs. All Bloom-A-Thon azaleas also do great in hot conditions and are heat tolerant even during the hottest summer days in southern states.

Bloom-A-Thon Lavender Azalea Care

Plant these shrubs in well drained soil that is rich with nutrients. These do best with plenty of sun, but some afternoon shade in hot climates is a good idea. If you have a full sun location, these bushes will still perform very well. Watering is necessary weekly but sometimes these require more water than that during hot and dry summer conditions.

These azaleas do best with a 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch around the base of the plant. This helps retain moisture and protect the shallow roots. You may fertilize once a year using common azalea & rhododendron fertilizer, but do not do so after mid-July.

Pruning Bloom-A-Thon Lavender Azaleas is best done once a year. This promotes new growth and flower buds. It is best to trim in early summer as the first round of blooms start to fade. Do a conservative light cutting around the entire plant.

Bloom-A-Thon Lavender Azalea Spacing

Plant these shrubs 3 to 4 feet apart, center on center. If you would like to grow a flowering evergreen hedge, you can plant these 30 inches apart, center on center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
