    More about Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Autumn Carnation produces an abundance eye-catching, double pink flowers are produced in spring, summer, and fall. The flowers are very similar in appearance to the old 'Pink Ruffle' Azalea which only bloomed one time a year. The exceptional flower quality, color and lustrous dark green foliage make this variety an excellent landscape addition. USDA Zones 6B-9.

    Uses

    As one of the larger growing Encore Azaleas, Autumn Carnation has a very robust, upright growth habit to 5 feet tall with a 4 foot spread, making it useful in foundation plantings, in small or large groupings in landscape beds, as an informal colorful hedge, or singularly in containers. 

    Culture & Care

    Encore Azaleas prefer a an acid soil that contains plenty of organic matter and is well-drained. Encores will tolerate all-day full sun however will also tolerate some shade. Too much shade and flowering will be diminished. 5 hours or more of direct sun per day is recommended. A light pruning and feeding after the first bloom phase can help stimulate new growth and encourage heavier bud development.

    I have ordered these 2 times. A first order of 4 (summer), and a second order of 3 (spring). The first order arrived in full bud with a few flowers open. They transplanted with no set backs and bloomed beautifully. The second order the plants were slightly smaller and no buds, but it was earlier in the season. They transplanted well and are now in bud/bloom and putting on size. All of the plants were as nice as I could purchase at a local high-end nursery, but this particular azalea has not been carried in my area.

    The plants arrived in great condition. The packing was interesting - but the plants were still damp with moisture. We got them planted and they look terrific. Thank you so much.

    Just planted it a few weeks ago so its really too soon to give a review. I will update this review perhaps later in the season.

    Reply from Gardener Direct:

    Hi Joanne - We hope the azaleas arrived in good condition. Azaleas like well-drained, moist, acidic soil, but not constantly soggy soil. So water them during the first growing season only enough to keep the root ball and the soil around the root ball damp, but not soggy. Encore Azaleas produce buds every time they flush out new growth. Anything done to promote new growth, such as pruning and feeding lightly after flowering, will encourage more blooms. Feed with an Azalea & Camellia fertilizer or a well-balanced Shrub & Tree fertilizer that contains iron and/or sulfur for deep greening. You can find links on the Autumn Carnation product page to planting and care instructions.
