Description

The Autumn Twist Encore Azalea is guaranteed to knock your socks off! This reblooming azalea features unique magenta purple and crisp white blooms that emerge in unpredictable patterns. Some have purple stripes, some are all white with purple spots, while some emerge completely purple! Additionally, the latter heavily resembles the Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea.

This random bloom nature creates a fantastic display when planted in groups. An initial bloom symphony of white and magenta will greet you in spring. Afterwards, expect the Autumn Twist to bloom up to 2 more times; with up to 3 bloom cycles being possible every year!

The Autumn Twist’s evergreen foliage emerges a soft green before maturing to a darker green hue. Furthermore, these soft, elliptically-shaped leaves come to a defined point on the end.

The Encore Twist is one of the larger Encore Azaleas reaching a mature size of 4.5ft H x 4ft W. At this size, it’s perfect as an informal hedge you don’t want to worry about maintaining.

Try it as a foundation planting, hedge, container, or specimen. Alternatively, use it as a mass planting for a truly remarkable display.

Autumn Twist 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 Twist having reduced bloom potential.

This purple and white blooming azalea prefers well-draining, rich garden soil with a slightly acidic pH. Poor draining soil will eventually result 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 Twist Encore Azaleas in spring with a slow release Acidic Fertilizer to keep the blooms coming season after season!

    It is The Most Beautiful Creature, like a butterfly shrub. The “butterflies” are white with exotic and carried hot purple dots and splashes, multi abundant blooms everywhere, and i always want to eat them, too, because they are almost waxy like easter white chocolate with strawberry swirls. Plants by Mail packaged each Encore Azalea–and i ordered a lot of all the colors–each one was packaged like a gift from Cartier. Just the most Special Presentation, and they came soon fast and i was excited to plant them, and they just thrive and explode with blooms. I go out there every morning and drink them in…

    We ordered 10 of these plants with trepidation. This is the first time ordering plants online. I was pleasantly surprised when these arrived. They were very well packaged so they were not damaged in transport. The plants themselves were beautiful! They were dark green and very healthy. I was so impresses with the quality I ordered 17 more! I’ll definitely use Plants by Mail again.

    The plant arrived healthy and beautiful. Quick, secure shipping (and very reasonable!), and well packed. I’ll order again in the future with confidence.
