Description

The new Autumn Sunburst Encore Azalea is an azalea you won’t regret planting! The Encore Sunburst produces bicolor coral pink blossoms with soft white edges. These gorgeous flowers emerge in greatest numbers during a massive initial spring bloom. Afterwards, they will produce 2-3 more slightly smaller reblooms before the onset of winter. With warmer zones having the potential to see even more bloom cycles!

The Autumn Sunburst Encore Azalea produces glossy and rounded oval leaves. This bright green foliage remains evergreen all year long. Therefore, your landscape will never be bare with this azalea!

Use this pink and white blooming azalea in your landscape or garden as a specimen, accent, low hedge or foundation. Furthermore, it shines in container plantings, whether as a mixed container or a standalone.

With a mature size of 3′ H x 3.5′ W, this azalea is perfect for low-maintenance gardeners.

Autumn Sunburst Encore Azalea Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 6a-10b. Provide some winter protection for the Autumn Sunburst during its first couple growing seasons to help ensure survival.

Provide 4-6 hours of direct sun daily to ensure maximum blooms. Filtered sun all day can work, however, be sure that enough light is coming through. If not, you will not have as many blooms.

Plant the Autumn Sunburst Encore Azalea in well-draining acidic soil for best results. Azaleas are prone to root rot, so be sure that your soil has good drainage to ensure long-term success.

Water regularly for the first growing season. 2-3 waterings per week is generally sufficient, with increased frequency needed in times of high heat and drought. During this establishment period, check regularly to ensure that your plants are neither drying out or staying soggy.

Fertilize the Autumn Sunburst Encore Azalea with an acidic plant fertilizer in spring once the threat of frost has passed. Moreover, regular fertilizer applications will help to encourage increased blooming and growth.

    I ordered some azaleas from this place not expecting them to arrive as they did – they were packed perfectly in boxes so that the branches weren’t broken, the tops of the plants weren’t broken, all of the soil hadn’t been dumped out – actually they were in better shape then some plants I have bought at a nursery and driven home with them. I have already used this place again and will recommend it highly.

    I ordered azaleas and in a couple days we received them. They were packed perfect in sturdy boxes, easy directions on how to get them out. Great looking plants, soil still moist. Better than most stores. On line there is a nice video on how to plant, if needed. I’m planning on buying more!

    I ordered 3 Encore Azaleas in the 2 gal. size. They are absolutely beautiful. Plants are packaged well for mailing, arrived very healthy and well shaped. I definitely will order from this company again.

    This plant grew for awhile, along with other plants we bought, but the leaves developed brown spots that spread to the whole plant and it died. The other plants were fine.

    Received 3 plants; 1 was damaged during delivery. Contacted Plants by Mail and they immediately replaced the damaged one. Very satisfied with the service and azaleas so far. Got my fingers crossed that they will thrive and grow now that they are in the ground.
