    Uses

    With a height of 4.5 feet and spread of 4.5 feet, Autumn Royalty is 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.

A light pruning and feeding after the first bloom phase can help stimulate new growth and encourage heavier bud development.

    I appreciated the ease of ordering. My plants arrived in nice condition, are already planted, and look great. The website was very easy to navigate and the information and description of the items was very thorough. Thanks!

    I ordered the wrong azaleas for my daughters zone and had no trouble changing the same day. I called on a Saturday and talked to someone who was very helpful and said he would call me back to let meknow if they had the correct one in stock for her zone. He did cal back later in the afternoon and said there was no problem and the correct one would be shipped out on monday.

    Nice

    By the time I received the plant it had already gone through the blooming process. So now I have to wait and see what it looks like in the summer. Cant wait, I think they will be pretty.

    Reply from Gardener Direct:

    Hi Jean - Thanks so much for your feedback. You must have received your Autumn Royalty's right after their spring bloom. Unlike other azaleas, which only produce flower buds in the fall that bloom in spring, Encore Azaleas produce flower buds on new growth after the spring cycle that will then bloom in the current year, usually mid to late summer into fall. Here at our location in mid Georgia, all Encores have finished their spring cycle. At this time, we usually give them a light pruning and feeding to encourage more new growth, which then creates even more new flower buds. Seems the more sun the Encore Azaleas get the more they bloom. That being said, we have many growing in our gardens that grow and bloom fine with some partial shade or filtered sun.

    Good Growing!
