About Autumn Empress™ Encore® Azalea

This Encore Azalea variety has dense dark green foliage that contrasts nicely with the medium pink blooms. While nice as a specimen planting Autumn Empress is also a good choice for planting around the foundation of a building or home. Encore Azaleas are great for planting in the landscape or in container gardens and will grow best in slightly acidic soil. Apply a slow release granular fertilizer in spring.

Autumn Empress Encore Azalea Spacing Recommendations 

Space Your Autumn Empress Encore Azalea 2 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 3 feet apart for space between plantings.

    Our order arrived in perfect condition and the plants were very hardy. We will absolutely order from PBM again as we are extremely pleased with the quality of the plants and the condition of the plants when they arrived.

    Autumn Express Encore azaleas 2 gal. arrived within days of ordering, they were well wrapped and full and tall (reached to the top so my legs at 5’4”). They were very healthy with many buds. I very, very pleased with my order. Thank you.

    This is my favorite dwarf Encore azalea. These are hardy plants that will thrive if given enough water during a hot summer. The four II ordered and received were fine healthy plants that were packaged very well

    Beautiful, all the same size and packed well. They are in the ground and we have 3 blooms already.

  5. Ann Kammerer (verified owner)

    Plant arrived in beautiful condition and started actively growing from the first few days. No flowers open yet, but the color of the leaves and stems are beautiful.

    These were so beautiful and beautifully packaged. I have ordered more from Plants by Mail and will continue to do so. I could not have gone to a local nursery and gotten them home in as perfect condition.!
