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.
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.
For a seamless planting, plant your Autumn Chiffon Encore Azalea 2 feet apart. Alternatively, space them 3+ feet for gaps between plants.

How and When to Fertilize Encore Azaleas
We are extremely pleased with the five encore azaleas (2 gallon) we ordered from your company. They are by far the healthiest, fullest
and well packed of any plants that we have ever bought including online or in person. They arrived moist and packed with not a leaf loose in the boxes. We will definitely order from this company again.

I only received 6 plants instead of the 7 ordered . 2 plants are broken . I have called customer service and have not received a call back . I have also sent an e-mail with no reply .
Team PBM –
Good morning Ms Stephens. Customer service was contacted about this on the 22nd. An email was sent as a reply on the same day requesting pictures of any damaged plants the same day. Your replacement plant was shipped out on that same day for the missing plant. I was informed by you that the other plants you claimed to be damaged were not necessary to have replaced. Your missing plant is due to be shipped out today as we do not work on the weekends during off season. I have been diligent in responding to your messages at each step along the way. If your email security settings are strict you will have to check your spam folder for any business related replies. – Christy

Very pleased with overall purchase, shipping, and delivery. Plants all in great shape, out of a total of 26 plants received (two separate orders) I had no broken branches. All planted within 2 days, all in very good condition when they went into the ground. Watered every day for about 4 days in a row, (we were in low rainfall period), and very sandy ground in North Carolina. After that keeping water on them as weather determines. No stress showing on plants and they continue to amaze by pushing blooms through the whole transplant. Great plants, highly recommend!

I have ordered from Plants By Mail before and I love how well packaged the plants are and how quickly they are shipped. I put them in the ground and they instantly felt at home and started to grow and bloom. Thanks for the great care and the outstanding quality of your plants!

The plants arrived quickly and in very good shape. Since I have only recently planted them I have not seen them bloom but I am looking forward to the fall when hopefully they will be well enough established to put on a show.
Terry (verified owner) –
I have had these plants now for about three weeks. They are starting to bloom and they are beautiful. They arrived on time as promised. Due to our weather conditions here in Florida at the time of arrival I could not plant them for several days. This did not affect the plants at all. I would definitely order from this company again.

Becca (verified owner) –
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.

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

From Olympia, WA –
Purchased another 7 Encore Azaleas – all of them arrived in beautiful shape despite a cross-country trip in December.
These plants arrived well-packed and in great shape! I’m excited to see how they do!
