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

Wonderful azaleas, well packaged. They arrived with the soil still moist, and the boxes they came in did a very good job of protecting them. We purchased the 3 gal. size.

Azaleas of ANY color are a gorgeous focal point/addition to your landscape. My review is more about Plants By Mail – so lucky to have stumbled upon this company by my Google search for this particular azalea. No nursery in Winston Salem had it – they get in different things each year – I was afraid I would not be able to match the grouping I already had. With the April discount and CHEAP SHIPPING, I was able to get the 3 gal. cheaper than any local nursery. Delivered within 4 days of order, in a substantial box, well anchored and bagged in case UPS turned it upside down – BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY, and in PRISTINE SHAPE. I’ll come back to this company again.

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

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.!
