If you’ve ever wished your azaleas just flowered more than a few weeks, the Perfecto Mundo series of Azaleas is your answer. With this series, you’ll see lavish spring bloom followed by a repeat performance from midsummer through frost – without any pruning required! A light trim will boost your summer flowers, however. Another win for this series is it is resistant to lace bugs, a pest that threatens azaleas in many regions in the country. This cultivar, Perfecto Mundo Red has the first red in the series – a bold cherry that will glow from a distance.

Perfecto Mundo Red is a compact, neatly mounded, evergreen with glossy dark green foliage that blooms its heart out in sun or part shade, and only reaches 30 inches high, so it’s a great centerpiece for larger patio pots or raised beds, as well as in countless landscape applications.

Perfecto Mundo® Red Azalea Care

Perfecto Mundo Red, like all azaleas, will love an acidic soil, a sunny or partially sunny site, and regular water. If your soil tends to the alkaline, you can plant in containers with a balanced potting soil, or applying acidic fertilizer in landscape locations. For general fertilizing, a rose fertilizer is best in early spring just as new growth emerges. Its bloom power comes from its ability to flower on both old and new wood, so while it doesn’t require pruning, a light trim after the initial spring bloom will bring on fuller new growth for an expanded second show.

Perfecto Mundo is also resistant to lace bug, which can be a pest in certain areas.This evergreen shrub is cold-hardy to zone 6b, but it’s really 6b with an asterisk - the distributor notes it prefers milder coastal 6b locations to harsher inland winters. Mulching and planting in protected spots is ideal in zone 6b.

Perfecto Mundo® Red Azalea Spacing

With a height of 30 inches and a spread of up to 48 inches, we recommend a spacing of 36 to 48 inches.

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.
