If you love spring-blooming azaleas, you can enjoy this explosion of color season after season with Encore Azaleas. Each of the 25 Encore Azalea varieties begins their performance with the spring flowering season. Once this “first act” of blooming concludes, new shoots begin to grow and set buds. The Encore Azalea’s “second act” opens when these buds begin blooming—in many areas, in summer. This unique bloom season continues through fall, the curtain dropping with the onset of cold weather.
Encore Azalea, the world’s best-selling multi-season blooming azalea, revolutionized the azalea industry. Encore Azaleas will colorfully impact your garden for years to come.

A mophead hydrangea that can bloom on both the current season’s growth as well as the previous year’s growth: this Endless Summer hydrangea greatly outperforms the old-fashioned Hydrangea macrophylla. The notion was simple and, once the breakthrough was made, the results have been spectacular.
The repeat blooms of Endless Summer® The Original truly offer gardeners an endless summer of incredible color. This hardy plant is perfect for everything from foundation planting to container gardening. They even make an ideal floral arrangement or table setting as cut flowers.
Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. From the former they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature.
Continuously blooming from spring to frost, they are naturally dwarf, with very attractive foliage. They are winter hardy to zone 5.
The Knock Out® Family of Roses are easy to grow and do not require special care. They are the most disease resistant rose on the market, and they have stunning flower power with a generous bloom cycle (about every 5-6 weeks) that will continue until the first hard frost. All of the Knock Out® Roses are self-cleaning so there is no need to deadhead.
The Knock Out® Family of Roses are winter hardy to USDA Zone 5 and heat tolerant throughout the entire United States. They thrive in almost every area of the country. In the coldest regions, they will need winter protection. These patented varieties of plants are sold under license from the patent owner.
The BrazelBerries® varieties are completely changing the way we think about berry plants. They are breathtakingly beautiful and produce amazing fruit we can eat.
Today, personal health, sustainability, family fun, and bringing natural beauty into our homes are cornerstones of holistic living, and the plants we buy should be no exception. No longer confined to the edible garden, BrazelBerries® varieties are designed for your landscape, patio, and intimate outdoor spaces.
