Encore Azalea Adds Grower Partners

Encore Azalea has added five new wholesale grower partners to its Encore Azalea licensed grower group. The new growers include:

–    Bracy’s Nursery, LLC: Based in Louisiana
–    Carolina Nurseries, Inc.: Based in South Carolina
–    Hackney Nursery Company: Based in Florida
–    Hines Nurseries: With locations in Arizona, California, Texas and Oregon

“The addition of these quality grower partners will expand Encore Azalea’s availability to more consumers in our current distribution area and provide much-needed increased distribution in California,” says Kip McConnell, director of PDSI, Plant Development Services, Inc.

Encore Azaleas are the invention of plant breeder Robert E. “Buddy” Lee of Independence, La. PDSI, based in Loxley, Ala., assisted Lee in the 15-year hybridization and selection process, and now manages the group of wholesale growers that brings Encore Azaleas to gardeners across the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, the Northwest and now California.
