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