About Autumn Lily® Encore® Azalea

Robust and upright with deep green foliage Autumn Lily produces large single form white blooms with occasional purple stripes. Its strong growth and profuse blooms make Autumn Lily perfect for mass and foundation plantings. This is one of the most cold-hardy Encore Azalea varieties able to thrive down to USDA zone 6a. Lily is one of the larger Encore Azaleas reaching a mature size of 4.5ft H x 4ft W. Pick a location in your landscape for this Azalea that will receive 4-6 hours of direct sunlight, then dig the hole twice as wide as the container your plant arrived in and mix in a well-drained slightly acidic garden soil. Fertilize your Encore Azaleas every spring with a slow-release acidic fertilizer to keep the blooms coming all season long!

Autumn Lily Encore Azalea 

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

    So far, I am happy with the purchase. I am a plant murderer. I hope these are patient with me.

      Be kind to yourself. Plants are there to help us learn. It takes time to learn how to live with other life forms. 😉 – Christy

    Omg so happy with my purchase! All 5 plants arrived healthy. 1 of them started blooming before we got it in the ground and it only took us 5 days to do so.

    Autumn Lilly Azaleas
    These arrived beautifully. Packing was great, plants were very healthy and bigger than expected. All planted and look amazing 🤩 can’t wait to see them in bloom.

  4. Margaret (verified owner)

    My azaleas arrived and are beautiful, healthy, and wonderfully packaged. I will definitely use Plants by Mail in the future.

  5. Jeremy (verified owner)

    I ordered 2 encore azaleas. They arrived in perfect condition and exceeded my expectations for an online plant purchase. They look just like I picked them myself at a local nursery. Will definitely order again.

  6. Kim (verified owner)

    I ordered an Encore Azalea to match one that I already had and never have been able to find another locally. The plant arrived well packed, was plenty moist, and had beautiful foliage. I’d definitely order again!

  7. Melinda (verified owner)

    These pretty plants were delivered nicely packed and in great condition. I am very optimistic that they will do well when we plant them in the garden!!

  8. Bayne Welker (verified owner)

    Plants arrived healthy and full, now in the ground a couple of weeks and they continue thrive. Happy with the quality.

    My Autumn Lily azalea blooms so beautifully! It came nicely packaged, and adjusted to being planted wonderfully! It is growing and blooming above my expectations! Thank you!

    We’re thrilled with our four Autumn Lily Encore Azaleas and an Autumn Rouge we also ordered. Plant delivery was excellent and fast, and we could never have found four of these at out local nursery. The plants are putting on new growth and we look forward to blossoming. This is the way to buy azaleas!

    Shipping container was damaged, but plants arrive in good health. This year I have planted four of the Autumn Lily Azaleas and within a week of planting, two began to blossom. Plants are beautiful.

  12. Anthony Dagrosa (verified owner)

    These were basically cuttings so small. Good health but will never grow into the space with the others.

  13. Tracy Ballard (verified owner)

    The Azaleas and Gardenias arrived in 3 days. They were very healthy looking. So far they are doing well here is south Mississippi.

  14. Micheal Dunkin (verified owner)

    Plant arrived in very good shape and ready to be planted. Already had blooms

  15. Mike (verified owner)

    Nice healthy plants

  16. Betsy (verified owner)

    Lovely, full foliage plants arrived moist and healthy. Doing great in my garden.

  17. Gary (verified owner)

    So far so good. Bought five 3 gallon plants and they ended up taking 8 days to get out to Seattle. But they looked great when I unwrapped them and I’ve since put them in the ground and after several weeks they still look good. So fingers crossed but they look far better than I ever expected then and now. Thanks

  18. Mary

    Love these azaleas. Shipped very fast and plants were very healthy. Two are already blooming. Will order again from Plants by Mail. Wonderful experience.

  19. Calogero (verified owner)

    I love the packaging . I won’t buy from anywhere else . Thanks for ur detail in caring for the plant.

      We do love our plants and great care is provided them in every step of our processing! I am so glad they have found a loving home. -Christy

    Flowers arrived quickly and were absolutely lovely.

  21. Loraine (verified owner)

    We ordered 20 azaleas and two hydrangeas. The plants were healthy and packaged well. After three weeks they all seem to be thriving.

  22. Iris (verified owner)

    I was amazed how beautiful they were and very happy on how their adapting.

  23. Iris (verified owner)

    I was amazed how beautiful they were and arrived well packaged no broken stems.

  24. Dana McKinley (verified owner)

    Packaged very well and was impressed with how full and healthy the plants looked when they arrived. Way better than expected and as good, if not better, than what I would expect to get locally. I think the white will help break up all the purples and pinks we have scattered around them. Should be beautiful!

  25. Christine Windsor (verified owner)

    I ordered 5 Encore Azaleas and they arrived well packaged and the plants were healthy and gorgeous! I will order again!

  26. daprasti (verified owner)

    I ordered four of the Autumn Lily Encore azaleas (as well as 26 boxwoods), and they all arrived quickly and in great shape. I was so pleased with them that I just ordered two more azaleas. I had several bad experiences with another well-known online nursery, so I was hesitant to order from PBM. I’m so glad I gave them a try. They are my new go-to online nursery. Can’t wait to see my azaleas bloom.

  27. Kathy Rae

    I ordered 5 Encore azaleas which arrived in a timely manner. The plants were packaged well and the plants showed no signs of distress. I was impressed with the quality. I planted them the same day that they arrived. Several days have passed and there is already new growth. I look forward to seeing how well they will bloom.

  28. Sharon Flenner

    In February I ordered five Autumn Lily azaleas from y’all which arrived very quickly and were in wonder shape, as good as if I had driven them home from a local nursery thanks to your great packaging. Due to the fact that I am my only gardener, they stayed above ground for several days. However, as I have been watering them regularly they have bloomed with additional flowers while waiting to get planted (they love being in Florida). They are such healthy plants and I am very glad I ordered them from Plants-by-Mail!

    I wasn’t sure how well they would tolerate being shipped. However, they arrived unharmed and beautiful! They had so many blooms! Very pleased 🙂

  30. marisol ferrer

    I ordered 3 plants initially and then 2 more when I saw how large and well developed they arrived. Some are already full of blooms and others will bloom soon- beautiful plants that arrived quickly and in good condition.Falcon
