The blooms of the Autumn Sunset Encore Azalea pay homage to the vivid orange-reds of spectacular sunsets. The lush deep green foliage of this evergreen azalea provides the perfect backdrop for these flowers to really shine. The Autumn Sunset has a neat and compact dwarf growth habit that is very easy to maintain with minimal pruning. Use this azalea in your landscape or garden as a specimen, accent, low hedge or foundation. The Autumn Sunset is also great for planting in large pots either in a mixed container or a standalone. This Encore Azalea blooms in Spring, Summer, and Fall, so however you use it is bound to make a significant color impact! Plant your Encore Azalea in slightly acidic well drained garden soil in an area that receives full to part sun and apply a slow release granular fertilizer for best bloom performance.
