About Autumn Chiffon™ Encore® Azalea

The Autumn Chiffon Encore Azalea is a reblooming beauty that fits into any landscape or garden!

The Autumn Chiffon produces bi-color blooms that tend to be bright white on the edges and whitish pink the closer you get to the center. Additionally, magenta pink freckles decorate the throat of these plentiful blossoms.

This white and pink blooming azalea produces an initial flowering in spring, followed by a summer bloom cycle, and fall bloom as well. Furthermore, the features a particularly sizable summer bloom period, somewhat atypical for reblooming azaleas. These blooms are medium-sized and traditionally measure around 2.75″ across.

The characteristic white and pink blooms sit atop petite evergreen leaves with a defined point and slight fuzziness. New growth emerges as a bright light green, before maturing to a rich dark green hue.

This variety reaches a mature size of 2.5′ H x 3′ W. Therefore, it’s perfect for mixed garden beds, borders, and containers.

Autumn Chiffon Encore Azalea Care

The Autumn Chiffon is hardy from USDA Zones 7-10.

This white and pink blooming azalea grows best when planted somewhere that it will receive 4-6 hours of direct sunlight. Too little sun will result in decreased foliage and bloom potential.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. During the second growing season, provide water 1-2 times per week during average weather conditions. After a few growing seasons, this dwarf azalea will only require additional water during times of drought.

The Autumn Chiffon Encore Azalea prefers to be planted in rich, slightly acidic soil with good drainage.

Fertilize a couple of times a year with an acidic plant fertilizer. This will encourage maximum health, growth, and bloom production.

Autumn Chiffon Encore Azalea  Spacing Recommendations

    Purchased another 7 Encore Azaleas – all of them arrived in beautiful shape despite a cross-country trip in December.

    Plants arrived quickly and were well packaged and very healthy. I just put them in the ground and they’re looking great!

    I have placed 2 different order of these plants. They arrived quickly very well packaged and in great condition. I have had them in the ground for a week and looking great so far. No blooms at this time. Hoping to see some this fall, but if not spring time here we come. I had a question after these were delivered and I had a very quick response back. Thank you.

    I ordered 16 Encore azaleas (8 Autumn angel and 8 Autumn chiffon). The plants arrived quickly, were very well packaged, and all were in really good shape – at least half were blooming or had buds. I had never ordered plants by mail before so I was somewhat skeptical and certainly not expecting such healthy plants. I am thrilled with Plants by Mail! Looking forward to see my encore azaleas in full bloom.

    I received seven plants well packaged and in great shade. Very green but buds and one flower on only one plant. Planted in a new raised bed with best new potting soil, proper irrigation and light shade pm only. All other plants in bed doing great. But not one bloom four months later. Have used miracle gro azalea fertilizer as directed. I have green thumb so I’m puzzled why they won’t bloom. Not really happy with purchase.
