Description

Looking for an award-winning blooming shrub for your landscape? Then look no further than the Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea! The Autumn Royalty was voted Azalea of the Year by the American Rhododendron Society, and it earned it! This azalea features large single-form, deeply funneled, magenta purple blooms that rebloom periodically from spring to the onset of winter.

The initial spring bloom will produce a multitude of gorgeous purple flowers. These flowers coat the Encore Royalty, creating quite a display. However, that’s not it for this reblooming azalea. It’s capable of blooming 3 times a year! Additionally, some warmer zones have the potential for even more.

The Autumn Royalty is a reliably evergreen landscape element. New foliage emerges a delicate light green before maturing to a rich dark green. These leaves are fuzzy, elliptic, and pointed at the tip.

This is one of the larger Encore Azaleas, reaching a mature size of 4.5′ H x 4′ W. At that size, it’s perfect as a low-maintenance hedge, specimen, or accent. Otherwise, try it as a container plant or mass planting. However you use it, you’ll appreciate its high bloom potential and eye-catching flowers.

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea Care

Hardy in USDA Zones 6a-10b.

Plant in Full Sun for best results. Encore Azaleas need to receive 4-6 hours of direct sunlight, or all-day lightly filtered sun. Consequently, too little sun will result in the Encore Royalty having reduced bloom potential.

This purple blooming azalea prefers well-draining, rich garden soil with a slightly acidic pH. Poor draining soil often results in root rot.

Water regularly after planting, 2-3 times per week during average weather conditions. However, increased water will be required in times of intense heat and drought. After a growing season or two, your plant will rarely need supplementary water.

Fertilize your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea in spring with a slow release Acidic Fertilizer to keep the blooms coming season after season!

Check out the Encore Royalty’s crazy cousin, the Autumn Twist Encore Azalea!

    Big floaty purple petals look like you’re dreaming. i added this purple one to my mostly Autumn Sunset landscape and along with several Autumn Twist -purple and pink multi pattern, it is just stunning right along where guests park in my driveway

    I got my plants today. They are perfect. They look better that expected to see with mail order plants! They are going in the ground tomorrow. I’ll be back.

    I am very impressed with the size & condition of the azalea I received. For the price, I wasn’t expecting the plant that I got. I’ve already recommended your website to some of my friends.

    I ordered a combination of Autumn Lilac, Autumn Bravo, and Autumn Royalty.. All of the plants arrived quickly, well-packed, and in excellent condition. They looked great right out of the the carton. I’m impressed.
