The Autumn Chiffon is a dwarf Encore® Azalea that produces a great show of bi-color white-pink blooms with a splash of dark pink freckles down the throat in spring summer and fall. The colorful bi-color blooms contrast nicely against the dark lustrous green foliage. The Autumn Chiffon is cold hardy down to USDA zone 7. Encore® Azaleas are known for their ability to tolerate full sun better than traditional azaleas, so make sure to plant them in a location that will receive 4-6 hours of direct sunlight, with some shade during the afternoon heat. Autumn Chiffon is great for planting in the landscape or in container gardens and will perform best in slightly acidic well drained garden soil.
