How To Care for your new Autumn Amethyst™ Encore® Azalea

When planting your Azalea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive.

Planting time: Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Azaleas.  However, if you avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures you can plant any time of the year

Sun: Full or part sun

Soil: Be sure your soil is well-drained and acidic.  If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend your soil.  To acidify your soil amend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants.  Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution.  To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting.

Fertilizer:  Choose a fertilizer for acid loving plants.  Fertilize in late winter or early spring to give the upcoming blooms a boost.

Pruning:  You don’t need to prune azaleas, but pruning after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant.

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Received my "Autumn Amethyst " Encore azlalea. It was in great condition, not damaged at all! Due I'm sure to the excellent way it was packaged. Very healthy and a good size. There is a world of difference in the quality of your plants and the ones which I have ordered in the past from another company. Yes I would definitely recommend you to my friends! And I will be ordering again!

I was skeptical buying landscape plants online but have been pleasantly surprised. Very happy with the purchase and overall a fantastic value too!
They came packed really well but one had to be upside down. That one didn't look so great since day one. It almost looked limp. Maybe it was in shock from being upside down. They both seem to be doing well now. Not sure if they will have flowers this year. I would buy more and I am planning to.

I was looking for an Azalea that can work in Zone 6. I also like that it will have a long bloom time from early summer into the fall.
