Among Japanese azaleas there are groups that originated as natural hybrids or were hybridized by botanists. Most of these hybrids are late flowering plants which brings a whole new view on evergreen azaleas.

REPETITA® RED is a hybrid evergreen azalea from the REPETITA® series developed by Robert and Lisa Head in Long Creek in Oconee County, South Carolina, USA. The aim was to bred reliably evergreen plants with extended bloom time. REPETITA® RED azalea produces large, 7-8.5 cm across, single to semi-double, vibrant red flowers. They appear in profusion in May and after a short break they sporadically bloom until the first frost. The older the plant the more flowers appear during summer.

Evregreen leaves are small, broadly elliptic, dark green, glossy, and less leathery compared to those on Japanese azaleas. The plant grows moderately into a dome-shaped, well-branched shrub about 70 cm tall and wide. US plant patent No. PP21562 was granted in 2010.

Azaleas usually need no pruning but can be clipped to shapes in early July after flowering. If so, do not use fertilizers enhancing growth rate. The size of new branches would get out hand and spoil the shape you are going to achieve. If can be placed in full sun if grown in excellent soil with equal moisture throughout the season. They need light, permeable soil that is acid, constantly moist (keep azaleas always mulched) and moderately fertile. Use fertilizers for rhododendrons and azaleas, or ericaceous plants. The best soil mix is 1/3 of peat, 1/3 of leaf-mould or lime-free compost, and 1/3 of refined soil from the hole where you are going to plant it. Azaleas have shallow roots, so do not plant them too deep. If leaves turn yellow or fall down after winter it is planted in wet or heavy soil. Its hardiness was so far tested down to -25 °C (USDA zone 6).
