About Autumn Majesty® Encore® Azalea

The Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea promises to bring bounties of beautiful blooms to your landscape! The Autumn Majesty produces rich semi-double, fuchsia purple blooms that have a delicately ruffled appearance to them. Blooms first appear in the spring in an impressive display. Afterward, this Encore Azalea will continue the show by reblooming in summer and fall.

The eye-catching fuchsia purple azalea blossoms rest atop vivid green foliage. New growth emerges a bright green before maturing to a deep green.

The Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea is a compact-sized Encore Azalea and reaches a mature size of 3′ H x 3′ W.

Try this fuchsia purple blooming azalea as a foundation planting, accent, border, hedge, or container plant. However you use it, you really can’t go wrong!

This variety is naturally compact, with a rounded growth habit. Therefore, pruning is traditionally unnecessary with this low-maintenance variety.

Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 6-10. Furthermore, the Autumn Majesty is one of the most cold-hardy Azaleas around and is capable of surviving down to -5° F when established.

Provide 4-6 hours of sun daily for proper blooming. The morning sun is preferable, as intense afternoon sun can stress the plant. Less than 4 hours of sun can result in decreased blooms and less dense foliage.

The Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea, like most azaleas, prefers slightly acidic, rich soil with good drainage.

Water regularly for the first growing season, 2-3 times per week in average weather conditions. During the second growing season, water 1-2 times per week. This will help your Encore Majesty to produce deep roots which will help ensure its success in the long run.

Fertilize in early spring with balanced, acidic plant fertilizer. Reapply fertilizer again in early summer to promote faster plant growth.

Spacing Your Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea 

For a seamless planting, plant your Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea 3 feet apart. Alternatively, space them 4+ feet apart for gaps between plants.

  1. Susan (verified owner)

    Even with a delay with delivery, my Encore showed how great growers make a difference. I got it in the ground promptly to help insure it recovers just fine.

  2. Bryan Measles (verified owner)

    Encore is one of the fullest I have seen. Thanks!

  3. MavisJ (verified owner)

    I purchased 3 of the Autumn Majesty earlier this years. The plants arrived in great condition and are lovely. Hoping that I get some fall blooms this year.

  4. Anna Moore (verified owner)

    I was astonished to see my plants arrive in such great condition. The Packaging was well thought about and the plants showed no sign of wear or hydration. I was very much pleased.

  5. GLENN (verified owner)

    The color of this plant is exceptional and adds a lot of value to my property and I like that it blooms multiple times a year for added color.

    I’ve ordered 10 azaleas and have had them for about a month. They arrived in great condition and very full for 2gallons. I paid around 20 dollars per bush and I can say they were well worth it and they actually exceeded my expectations. Can’t wait for them to bloom and grow! Don’t hesitate to buy these; the quality of these azaleas are top notch for online purchase! Thank you encore and plants by mail!
    Quick Note: if you are new to azaleas make sure you follow plant care instructions to plant and care for. I have clay soil and live in zone 6a so I amended the soil and used bio-tone and Azalea plant food to help jump start these beauties.

  7. Melissa (verified owner)

    The Encore azaleas we ordered arrived in a few days. They are beautiful, healthy plants.

  8. Frankie Foidl (verified owner)

    The plants came perfectly packaged and healthy. We planted them and watered them. They already have some new leaves on them. Can’t wait to see the majesty azaleas bloom. Because we were so pleased with the healthy plants, my husband said I could get another one so I picked the pink empress encore azalea. It came still blooming. What a surprise! My husband fell in love with it and planted it right away. Thank you for such quick response in mailing them to us. They are beautiful. Oh, by the way my first purchase was a wedding hydrangea. It has put on a beautiful show ever since we planted it twio years ago. Thank you for great plants and great service.

  9. Adam (verified owner)

    Plants arrived packaged securely and in perfect condition They look perfect.

  10. Tom (verified owner)

    Arrived in very good condition and was easy to replant.

  11. Jessica Nakos (verified owner)

    Both Autumn Majesty Encore Azalea plants arrived in great condition and look very healthy. I’m getting ready to put them in the ground. They were not blooming when they arrived, but I’m looking forward to seeing that when they’re settled and ready.

  12. Bob (verified owner)

    By far the best online nursery I have ever used (and I have used five in the past year for plants). The azaleas arrived on time and as fresh and healthy as if they were packed that day. They are beautiful. The packaging is unique and very effective. Plants By Mail is my new “go to” nursery.

  13. Kristine

    Very healthy and super quick turnaround and shipping. Received the plant end of April but still no flowers yet. I hope that the spring bloom happens(!) but overall very happy with quality and this online store.

  14. Lila Riesenhuber (verified owner)

    The plant arrived in time specified. It was packed beautifully & the shipper faithfully followed all instructions. It was perfect!! Couldn’t ask for anything more. It is a beautiful, well taken care of plant! Thanks so much.

  15. Kendall P. Wendell

    It’s hard to find a reliable online nursery but so far, I am very pleased with my 3 azaleas. They came quickly, were packaged well, and healthy. I will order from them again.

  16. linda (verified owner)

    Azaleas packed well, well watered, look healthy.

  17. Robyn decker (verified owner)

    I ordered 4 different colors on core azaleas. None of them. Survived the winter is there a warranty on those plants

  18. Tracy Mitchell (verified owner)

    Several branches were broken during shipping and there were lots of brown/dropping leaves. It looked like a disease issue to me. I notified and they told me I was wrong and were a bit combative about it. They did respond quickly though. I planted it but am not sure what will happen.

  19. Mona (verified owner)

    I have made 2 purchases and I’m extremely happy with both. I will definitely be ordering more plants from this company. My azalea arrived with blooms already on the plant.

  20. Susan D’Aiuto (verified owner)

    My Autumn Majesty Azalea looked distressed when it arrived, it may have been due to the traveling distance to get here but I had the perfect location for planting it & it perked up & seems to be doing fine.

  21. Cretia (verified owner)

    I was on the waitlist for Autumn Majesty Azalea and when it became available, I immediately bought 2. This was my first time ordering plants online and was anxious about their appearance once delivered. To my surprise, my Encore Autumn Majesties arrived well-boxed, healthy, and watered well. This was my first time ordering from PBM. I will be ordering again and would definitely recommend this site. Thank you 🙂

  22. Vicki Taylor (verified owner)

    Received 2 large, healthy plants. Well packed and arrived timely. A few smaller broken twigs, but nothing that affects the health or appearance. I will definitely order again in the future.

  23. Teresita Anderson

    I read all the reviews and very impressed and happy! I am new , haven’t ordered anything from your company . I would like to order those Azaleas, how do I do that? Telephone number , please!

  24. VWilliams (verified owner)

    Beautiful plants, beautiful foliage. I can’t wait to see them bloom. They came quickly and were packed well. I loved shopping for plants this way.

  25. Danielle (verified owner)

    I ordered 3 Autumn Majesty Encore Azaleas for the front of my house. They arrived quickly and in great condition. They have been in the ground 7 days today and they are doing great!

  26. MA

    We purchased 4 Autumn Majesty Encore Azaleas and they came in wonderful condition! We are very happy with Plants by Mail. Great looking plants. Thank you!

  27. James Durham (verified owner)

    The Encore Autumn Majesty came in very healthy looking, we were lucky to get 19 of them for our flower bed in the front of the house. I am looking forward for them to be in full bloom.

  28. Ron DAVIS (verified owner)

    The Autumn Majesty azalea arrived in perfect condition despite rough handling in the shipping process. I am very pleased and look forward to siting this azalea in my garden and seeing the blooms sometime in the future. This experience with Plants by Mail gives me confidence to order again from this supplier.

  29. Natalie (verified owner)

    My azalea came perfectly packaged! The entire plant is beautiful and healthy.

  30. M Ruiz (verified owner)

    I was pleasantly surprised. 2 gallon azaleas arrived completely intact. The plants are full, healthy and were extremely well packaged. These are hard to find in garden centers so I took a chance.

  31. cox3342 (verified owner)

    Beautiful plants. They were packed very well and received without any damage.

  32. Sylvia L Reynolds (verified owner)

    Purchased three plants and the two smaller ones, red and pink are doing great ! The bigger one which is purple looks like it’s dying. So disappointed because I love Azaleas

  33. melissa (verified owner)

    2 aren’t surviving. Customer service states that it’s our fault, but the other 4 in the exact same area are doing well. They won’t replace so we’re stuck. I would use caution when ordering because you only have 30 days to report an issue for any replacement.

    • Team PBM

      Yes, we do have a 30 plant warrantee policy. It is incumbent upon the customer to provide care for their plants after receipt.

  34. Shannon

    Super fresh azaleas. Perked up with new leaves 2 days after planting. Very happy.

  35. lori4taxes (verified owner)

    We ordered 4 plants and all were delivered in great shape. They look very healthy. I look forward to their blooming.

  36. Charlotte (verified owner)

    All of my Autumn Majesty Azaleas came nicely packaged. They were smaller than I expected, I got the 2 gal., I was hoping they were larger, they looked more like 1 gal. plants, but, they were healthy. FedEx delivered a few boxes that were crushed on the sides, a few broken branches, but, overall they were ok. They are all planted and doing well! Can’t wait for them to grow and blossom.

  37. Jennifer Jobe (verified owner)

    My bushes came in very healthy and green! I mixed in well composted Black Cow brand cow manure to the dirt and fine ground egg shells to the dirt. My bushes look like they have already grown several inches! Love my bushes! Anxiously waiting on them to bloom!

  38. Happytrails (verified owner)

    Autumn Majesty arrrived very healthy and much bigger than I expected. Was happy to be able to order these as they tend to be bought up fast and even though I live near a big city I’m not able to find these anyplace local. Will try to find a special spot for this one it should be beautiful. Plants were packed nicely in some pine bark soil and well protected even thought the boxes had been a little crushed in delivery.

  39. Richard Griffiths (verified owner)

    Our Autumn Majesty Encore Azaleas arrived on time and in excellent condition. The price for 2 gallon plants was fair, and we look forward to seeing them bloom.

  40. Gene Griffiths (verified owner)

    Our Autumn Majesty Encore Azaleas arrived in perfect condition and on time as indicated. The price was fair, and we are super excited to see them bloom.

  41. Diane Elizabeth Uttendorf (verified owner)

    I was very happy with my plant. It was very healthy and the packaging of the plant was quite impressive

  42. texasandy (verified owner)

    I have always been very happy with the plants I have recieved from Plants By Mail. Everything has been very healthy, however my most recient order, these Azaleas, while they look very healthy, the potting medium is TERRIBLE!! I had to use a large screwdriver just to get it loosened up a little so that I could free some of the roots.

  43. Sandra Hall (verified owner)

    I ordered 24 (one gallon) Autumn Majesty. I received 4 boxes of 4. All of these were packed just fine. Federal Express lost two boxes but did deliver 2 days later. I was expecting them to be half dead and all dried out. To my surprised, they were absolutely perfect. The soil was still moist. I can’t wait until these bloom.

  44. Delia

    Would love this plant

  45. bsoupsr (verified owner)

    These Autumn Majesty Azaleas were very disappointing. Three arrived packed in the vented boxes just like the many others I have purchased. All seven had been pruned with bare twigs, some dead twigs, and not full and lush. Four of them arrived in a box with no vent holes, on their sides, very dried out and with black spots on the leaves. Customer service was quick to respond saying they have added a new 4 pack box because of providing free shipping and increased shipping costs they as a business must be finacially responsible. They did say from the pictures I sent the plants looked healthy to just prune off the spotted foilage and that they will do well when planted and cared for as required. We will follow their advice and hope that they will do well. Customer service had refunded money recently on two different Encore Azaleas which we had issues with and had asked to have replaced with a different variety. We will think twice about ordering more plants from them because of their new shipping method.

    • Team PBM

      Good morning again Ms Suppo. I am sorry to hear again that you have an issue with our 4 pack box. After reviewing your plants I saw no concern that would make a replacement or refund necessary, as I had done so with your other orders. I saw none of the things you described in your review. I hope you have a blessed day. – Christy

  46. Marco (verified owner)

    I was lucky enough to purchase 5 of the new Autumn Majesty Encore Azaleas in the 1 gallon size when they became available. I believe these are going to be a very popular variety. This azalea looks amazing. All 5 azaleas had beautiful purple blooms when they arrived. I look forward to enjoying them as they grow!
