The Autumn Belle Encore Azalea produces bi-color ruffled blooms with pink-red specks in spring summer and fall. This evergreen shrub has lush green new foliage in spring that matured to a deep dark green that bronzes to a deep green-purple in winter that adds interest to the winter landscape.
The Autumn Belle is composed of a neat and compact intermediate growth habit that is very easy to maintain with minimal pruning. Use this azalea in your landscape or garden as a specimen, accent, low hedge or foundation. Autumn Belle is also great for planting in large pots either in a mixed container or a standalone. Plant your Encore Azalea in slightly acidic well-drained garden soil in an area that receives full to part sun for best bloom performance and fertilize in spring with a slow release granular fertilizer to keep the blooms coming all season long!
Space Your Autumn Belle Encore Azalea 2.5-3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Alternatively, plant them 4+ feet apart for space between plantings.
