About Autumn Angel® Encore® Azalea

The Autumn Angel Encore Azalea is a delicate beauty that will live up to its name as it lifts your garden and landscape to new heights!

The Autumn Angel produces clear white blooms spring through fall that measure around 3 inches across. These blossoms are graceful and elegant, with a classy flair that doesn’t overstate itself. An initial spring display produces dozens of blooms that illuminate the landscape. Afterward, this reblooming azalea keeps the flowers coming as it blooms again in summer and fall!

The Autumn Angel Encore Azalea features glossy, light green leaves that are the perfect complement to its delicately beautiful blooms. Additionally, these evergreen leaves are consistent all year long and won’t leave your landscape bare in the dead of winter.

This white blooming azalea is perfect for foundation plantings, container plantings, accents, mixed garden beds, low hedges, and borders.

Autumn Angel Encore Azalea Care

Hardy in USDA Zones 7-10, down to 0° F when established.

The Autumn Angel Encore Azalea grows best when it receives 4-6 hours of direct sun or all-day filtered sun. Too little sun will result in decreased bloom potential and foliage coverage.

Water 2-3 times per week for the first growing season. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. After they have a few growing seasons under their belt, they generally won’t need any supplementary water, except in times of drought.

The Autumn Angel prefers rich, acidic soil with good drainage. Azaleas don’t like to have wet feet, so make sure that your soil isn’t staying soggy for hours on end after watering.

Fertilize a couple of times throughout the year with an acidic plant fertilizer for best results. This will help ensure that your Autumn Angel Encore Azalea stays happy and healthy.

Autumn Angel Encore Azalea Spacing Recommendations

Plant your Autumn Angel Encore Azaleas 2 feet apart for seamless foliage. Alternatively, space them over 3 feet apart to let their natural growth habit shine through.

    I love the angel azaleas that I ordered from Plants by Mail. They arrived in great condition and healthy. I watered them and let them get acclimated for the first week and they are still doing great! For the one plant that was crushed, they immediately sent a replacement plant.

  2. Joe Campbell (verified owner)

    I am very appreciative of the condition of my plants and how healthy they were when they arrived at my door. They are in the ground and looking just fine. I don’t expect any problems. Thank you!

  3. J adames (verified owner)

    First time ordering from internet and I was very skeptical because I didn’t want to deal with hassles returning plants. Was I wrong the plants came in healthy and beautiful. The packaging was perfect . The plants arrived in excellent condition. They stilled had moisture in them so they were ready to be planted. I will buy more plants from Highly recommended. I will include pictures after about 3 weeks

  4. Connie Staudinger (verified owner)

    I was extremely pleased with the quality of the plants and especially the customer service. The shipper missed four of my azaleas and all I had to do was to reach out to Plants by Mail and I received a response right back – after hours! The azaleas arrived about a week later but in great shape. I will absolutely continue using Plants by Mail for my garden needs. We just bought our home, and it needs a lot of TLC.

    received in the most beautiful condition of any plant received by mail

  10. gsango83 (verified owner)

    This azalea is simply amazing. For some unknown FedEx reason this plant took eleven days to show up. Amazingly the plant showed no I’ll effects. Simply a healthy plant from a terrific company with great customer service.

    We received our large order of a variety of shrubs – beautifully packed, nice, healthy plants. Each of the nearly 40 shrubs ordered looks to be in peak condition. PBM was also very responsive to answer our different questions regarding plant choices, options, and substitutes. Very pleased, as usual.

  12. ted & kathy (verified owner)

    Received our plants in good shape just a little slow in arriving from FedX , but all are in the ground and starting to put on beautiful flowers

  13. Carolyn M Fisher (verified owner)

    Very pleased with order

  14. Kathy Gates (verified owner)

    I purchased 4. Arrived in pretty good shape, healthy though. Some of the stems had got broke during shipment. They are in the ground and doing well with lots of new blooms. Beautiful addition to our new flowerbed!

  15. fulmerwillis (verified owner)

    Bursting with blooms right out of the box. This beauty has been covered in flowers since it arrived. The pure white blooms stand out in contrast to the rich, dark green foliage. What a treat in late autumn to enjoy such a happy, healthy shrub.

  16. Jane (verified owner)

    The encore azaleas arrived in perfect condition in a couple of days and I can’t wait for spring to see them bloom.

  17. Kelley (verified owner)

    The plant arrived promptly and was quite healthy. It was a decent size, too. The purchase was a smooth and positive experience!

  18. Marco Salita (verified owner)

    I purchased 4 of these Autumn Angel Encore Azaleas in the 1 gallon size to be planted in container pots. They all arrived in great condition. The azaleas were well packaged and healthy! I already had a few blooms with a couple of these azaleas! I look forward to seeing these grow and bloom throughout the year!

  19. Pete aumbdenstock (verified owner)

    Plants arrived promptly in excellent packaging and in great condition. Planted them right away and are blooming after only 3 weeks. Just what I hoped for.

  20. karen shuster (verified owner)

    my azealea bush arrived in short time. it was very healthy and pretty. i am very happy with it and would reccomend plants by mail to anyone

  21. Donna Gerhold (verified owner)

    My azaleas arrived boxed very well for shipping. As soon as they arrived, they were planted. Just waiting for them to bloom! The plants themselves look very healthy.

  22. Dana McKinley (verified owner)

    Packaged very well and was impressed with how full and healthy the plants looked when they arrived. Way better than expected and as good, if not better, than what I would expect to get locally. These are a small variety but will be great in the front of our planting area to help balance all the colors. Excited to see them grow!

  23. Donna Auernig (verified owner)

    This was my first time ordering plants on the internet. My azaleas were supposed to arrive on a Sunday but I didn’t get them until Wednesday. I had visions of them being half dead but they were in perfect condition. I was very pleasantly amazed.

  24. Joana Baker (verified owner)

    Oh wow I never would have believed a shrub could be mailed and arrive in such perfect condition. It didn’t even need water when it got to my house

  25. Bernie

    The plants came in looking beautiful and with all the rain recently there is already new growth on the planted azaleas!

  26. J.W. (verified owner)

  28. bayareagardener (verified owner)

    Purchased 4 (1gal) plants in October 2018 and they arrived green, healthy and well packed. It is 6 months later and they are thriving and very green! Very pleased with the plants and am ordering 1 more to fill in the space (had decided to plant a little closer than originally planned).

  29. Pamela.Gibbs (verified owner)

    1-gallon size plants arrived promptly. They are a little larger than I expected, A couple were a little bit pot-bound but the plants are otherwise very healthy.

  30. ralph (verified owner)

    Beautiful, healthy plants arrived, well packaged for shipment. Realized shipment was 4 short, so I chatted with PBM support rep, David (?), who immediately arranged for replacements to be shipped. Received and all are now in the ground. Highly recommend this company!

  31. trishmed (verified owner)

    Arrived in good condition and looked great

  32. Gigi

    I ordered three of the Angel Azaleas in the 2 gallon pots. They were very healthy looking and alive when I received them. I hope they survive the Chicago winters, because the tags do not match the information that is on the website.

  33. Don K

    Plants arrived as promised. Look great out of the box. They are smaller than the other plants ordered, but lets see how they grow .and survive in Western NY.

  34. Cheryl

    Plants were shipped promptly and were very healthy.

  35. Jo

    I ordered 9 of these plants. They arrived beautifully packed & in extremely healthy condition. Now if I can grow them? Thank you for such good service. I will be ordering from you again.
