About Autumn Ivory® Encore® Azalea

The Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea is a low-growing, dynamite azalea perfect for lighting up your landscape with bright white blooms! Autumn Ivory produces dozens of pure white blossoms from spring through fall. Furthermore, each flower is single-form with five wide petals.

The foliage on the Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea is evergreen, glossy, and pointed, with slight fuzz. These leaves range from bright green to rich dark green.

The Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea is naturally compact, in fact, it’s one of the smallest, most dense Encore Azaleas around! It reaches a mature size of 2.5′ H x 3′ W. Therefore, it’s an ideal foreground plant.

Use this azalea in your landscape or garden as an accent in a mixed garden bed, low hedge or border, foundation planting, or in a low-maintenance mass planting. The Autumn Ivory is also great for planting in large pots either in a mixed container or a standalone.

Check out a couple of other white blooming varieties, the Autumn Angel Encore Azalea and Autumn Moonlight Encore Azalea.

Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 7-10, down to 0° F once completely established.

Allow for 4-6 hours of sun daily for maximum bloom and foliage potential.

Water 2-3 times per week during the first growing season. Provide water 1-2 times per week during the second growing season. After the first two growing seasons, the Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea only requires supplementary water during times of drought.

Plant in acidic soil with good drainage for best results. Highly alkaline soil will result in yellowing leaves due to difficulties absorbing nutrients.

Fertilize once or twice during the growing season with an acidic plant fertilizer to promote growth and the overall health of the plant. Additionally, top-dress your soil with 3-4 inches of compost or composted manure to feed your plant throughout the growing season.

Spacing Your Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea 

Space your Autumn Ivory Encore Azalea 3 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 4+ feet apart for gaps between plantings.

    great packaging, great plants

  2. Michael Davis (verified owner)

    This is the first time I ordered shrubs online. The plants arrived quickly and were in excellent condition. I watered them immediately and planted them 2 days later. They look great and are doing well 2 weeks later. I couldn’t be more pleased and will definitely order from them again.

  3. Michael Shannon (verified owner)

    Latest order was to replace an earlier order of the same plant which died. The shipment came quickly and the plant looks healthy. It has been planted and hopefully will be okay along with one other of the same size in my earlier order of two.

  4. Joe Campbell (verified owner)

    Arrived at my door shortly after ordering and they arrived healthy and well packed. I am very happy with Plants by Mail.

  5. Marion

    Very nice plants, arrived in great condition. Well packed.

  6. Deirdre Haynes (verified owner)

    I have finally figured out where autumn ivory will go, it will be a nice pop of white in my garden just as all the other encode azaleas have been in my zone 10 sw florida garden

  7. Nadia (verified owner)

    My two Encore Autumn Ivory shrubs were full, healthy, larger than I expected, and even had blooms. I order online all the time and thought I would receive the usual small plants that I’m use to getting for the price I paid. Boy was I delightfully surprised. I will be happily ordering more shrubs. Great job to all involved.

  8. Ann Kammerer (verified owner)

    I bought a second of these. It was as gorgeous and healthy as the first.

  9. jeff.m.grabowski (verified owner)

    Nice blooms. Arrived in great shape.

  10. Andy (verified owner)

    The plants arrived invery good condition and were very healthy

  11. Donnie Crews (verified owner)

    Love them, one is already blooming.

  12. annieK (verified owner)

    This has become one of the most beautiful and reliable plants in the garden. The bright white flowers are prolific and come in just as other things are fading.

  13. Tim Blue (verified owner)

    Arrived in great shape. Very green foliage and healthy looking plants. Happy so far.

  14. S.P.W. (verified owner)

    Plants arrived in very good condition with one in bloom. Thanks so much. I will order again.

  15. linfordfisher (verified owner)

    My four plants arrived in seemingly good condition, but they are really small–like really small–and no blossoms. Time will tell.

  16. Daniel Hogan (verified owner)

    The plants were packed very well, but the FedEx delivery person did not follow the arrows on the box to keep the plants upright and dropped them on their sides on our porch. Plants by Mail gave us great service and replaced the damaged plants with great speed and gracious customer service! The plants are doing beautifully!

  17. Tami (verified owner)

    The plants arrived when I was out of town. But my neighbor told me that the packaging was stellar. (He’s received lots of plants by mail and he said this was definitely the best.) I just got it planted in the ground yesterday and hope that it continues to do well. The 2 gallon had pretty blooms already.
