Make a big statement in spring… and again all throughout late summer and fall with Perfecto Mundo Double Dark Pink azalea. This big-time bloomer sets flowers just as prolifically in fall as it does in the springtime, doubling your azalea season! Its vivid dark pink flowers are similar in hue to many other lovely shrubs and perennials, making it a great option as the primary color for a garden. Its semi-evergreen foliage works nicely as winter interest in warmer areas and its low maintenance care regimen fits pretty easily into any gardener’s schedule.

Why grow Perfecto Mundo® Double Dark Pink azalea?

  • Extremely high bloom count
  • Time-saving, low habit helps cut down on weeds
  • Long blooming


Light: Has the healthiest foliage and flowers most prolifically in sites with part sun – all day dappled light or morning sun with afternoon shade.

Soil: Prefers acidic soils that stay evenly moist, but with good drainage.

Water: Likes to be kept on the moist side, but not soggy.

Fertilizing:  Apply compost to the soil surface every season, all azaleas benefit from high organic matter.

Pruning: Pruning isn’t necessary, but if you’d like to increase the abundance of rebloom you can trim it just after its big spring bloom. This encourages new growth, which will bloom more prolifically.

Other: Has shown improved lacebug resistance.
