About Autumn Carnation® Encore® Azalea

The Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea promises to bring bounties of beautiful blooms to your landscape and/or garden! The Autumn Carnation produces rich semi-double, pink blooms that have a delicately ruffled appearance to them.  Blooms first appear in spring in an impressive display. Afterward, this Encore Azalea will continue the show by reblooming in summer and fall.

The eye-catching pink azalea blossoms rest atop shimmering vivid green foliage. New growth emerges a bright green before maturing to a deep green.

The Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea is an intermediate sized Encore Azalea, and reaches a mature size of 4.5′ H x 4′ W.

Try this pink blooming azalea as a foundation planting, accent, border, hedge, or container plant. However you use it, you really can’t go wrong!

This variety is naturally compact, with a rounded growth habit. Therefore, pruning is traditionally unnecessary with this low-maintenance variety.

Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 6-10. Furthermore, the Autumn Carnation is one of the most cold-hardy Azaleas around and is capable of surviving down to -5° F when established.

Provide 4-6 hours of sun daily for proper blooming. Morning sun is preferable, as intense afternoon sun can stress the plant. Less than 4 hours of sun can result in decreased blooms and less dense foliage.

The Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea, like most azaleas, prefers slightly acidic, rich soil with good drainage.

Water regularly for the first growing season, 2-3 times per week in average weather conditions. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. This will help your Encore Carnation to produce deep roots which will help ensure its success in the long run.

Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, acidic plant fertilizer. Reapply fertilizer again in early summer to promote faster plant growth.

Spacing Your Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea 

For a seamless planting, plant your Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea 3 feet apart. Alternatively, space them 4+ feet apart for gaps between plants.

    I ordered three of the 3 gal Encore Azalea Carnation plants and they arrived last night. My husband and I opened the boxes this morning and we were very happy to see that all three of them are very healthy with blossoms on them. We can’t wait to plant them in our beautiful yard.

    Ordered 12 different Encore Azaleas in late October. They all arrived in beautiful condition and most even had flowers on them. I look forward to seeing them all in bloom next year.

    All the azaleas from Plants by Mail are beautiful, full, and healthy. The packaging is the best I’ve seen for protecting the plants and they arrive quickly.

    I ordered 8 Encore Azaleas and they arrived within a few days. The plants look great; shiny, healthy, robust, some even have blooms on them. I couldn’t be more pleased and would order from this place without a 2nd thought.

    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. Can’t wait to see these bloom and see the colors pop!
