More about Autumn Sangria Encore Azalea...
Autumn Sangria produces one of the largest blooms in the Encore Azalea collection. The gorgeous dark pink blooms are produced in abundance during spring and fall and sporadically through summer. USDA Zones 6-9.
With a height of 4.5 feet and spread of 4.5 feet, Autumn Sangria 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. 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.

5 stars for sure! I was back again this year and bought more of the Autumn Sangria to finish a planting area. Excellent service from knowledgeable staff! Gorgeous, healthy, cared-for and full- sized plants, shipped securely and arrived in perfect condition. When the need arises I will certainly order again! Thank you all at Gardener’s Direct!

Received in excellent conditionMay 13th 2012
Just received my 1 gallon Encore, hoping I can maintain them here in Zone-5-turned-6A. Will plant 1 in a container to bring inside, and 1 in the ground (and will winterize it)...and see what happens after our Indiana winter. but for now, it arrived well, and is growing happily. Above-and-Beyond level of customer service, too. Thanks, Spencer!
