Some blooms may be all purple or all white which provides a multi-color effect. One of the most popular in the series. USDA Zones 6-9.
With a height of 4.5 feet and spread of 4.5 feet, Autumn Twist is useful in foundation plantings, in small or large groupings in landscape beds, as an informal colorful hedge, or singularly in containers.

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.
