Product Details

The Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea is not your normal everyday azalea. It has all the great characteristics of the original azalea and so much more! With this shrub producing flowers for longer periods of time, it is a staple for every landscape design.

The flowers produced are a beautiful, deep, jewel toned fushia. During the flowering seasons, the trumpet shaped flowers grow in clusters at the end of each branch and blanket the entire shrub. From spring to summer you can enjoy enchanting pink-purple petals for the entire warm season. The Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea is a small and compact shrub that maintains a height of 2-3 feet and a width of 3-4 feet. This is an evergreen shrub, meaning that foliage is present year round.

The Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea is a compact shrub that fills in those smaller spaces in your landscape. In the spring and summer, a bounty of beautiful blooms are the highlight.  During the fall and winter, the shrub is a beautiful backdrop to other flowering plants in your beds and gardens. Use the Autumn Royalty Azalea as a foundation plant or even plant these in front of a privacy tree wall to add a pop of color to your landscape. Use it as a lone specimen or plant in a container for your porch.

This azalea is fairly heat tolerant and requires no maintenance once established. It is recommended to prune after the blooming season and fertilize in the early spring to enjoy a fully blossomed shrub during the growing seasons. Encore azaleas are hardy, evergreen shrubs that are perfect for adding color to your landscape!

How To Care for your new Autumn Royalty™ 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 Instructions

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 2 - 3 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.
