The 2017 addition to the Encore Azalea Collection is the brand new Autumn Bonfire. This Encore Azalea Autumn Bonfire produces rich true red velvety blooms that stand out boldly against the dark green evergreen foliage. These Azaleas can bloom up to three times per year in spring, summer, and fall. In winter, Autumn Bonfire’s foliage will change color to a deep purple to bronze adding interest to your winter garden. Additionally, compact and tidy growth habit of this Azalea makes it easy to care for and will require minimal pruning.
Pick a location in your landscape for this Azalea that will receive four to six hours of direct sunlight. Once you have selected a location, dig the hole twice as wide as the container your plant arrived in. Then mix in a well drained slightly acidic garden soil with your native soil to back-fill the hole. Also, fertilize your Azaleas in spring with a slow release acidic fertilizer to keep the blooms coming all season after season!
