Description

Bringing the quality reblooming nature and reliable growth habit you’ve come to expect from Encore®, the Encore Azalea Autumn Lilac is a true landscape gem! The Autumn Lilac has rich lavender blooms with dark purple flecks in the throat of the flower. This Encore has a huge initial bloom in spring, and then reblooms through summer and fall (and beyond in particularly warm climates). The blooms will keep on coming, with no deadheading required.

Additionally, the Lilac’s trademark soft purple blooms sit atop shiny green foliage that remains evergreen all year long. New foliage emerges a gorgeous light green in spring before maturing to a glossy dark green.

This azalea was bred for its cold hardiness and chosen for its naturally rounded growth habit. The Lilac reaches 3′ H and 3.5′ W, making it a great choice for a low-maintenance hedge or border. Alternatively, the Encore Lilac makes a fantastic accent, foundation plant, or mass planting. Furthermore, the compact growth habit of the Encore Azalea Autumn Lilac truly shines in a container garden.

Encore Azalea Autumn Lilac Care

Encores need more sunlight than traditional azaleas, generally 4-6 hours. Less than the recommended amount of sun may result in a decrease in blooms. In addition, the soil in your planting location should be acidic and well-draining. Poorly draining soil can lead to root rot, which azaleas are susceptible to.

Water your plant regularly after planting, generally the first few months at least. This will help it establish deeper roots, and ensure its future success.

To keep your Encore Azalea Autumn Lilac happy and healthy, fertilize it in early spring with a slow-release balance fertilizer. Organic gardeners should use a balanced organic fertilizer every two months or so, starting in early spring through summer. Supplementing your soil with compost or composted manure can improve the quality of your soil and provide food for your plants for months to come.

    Steve

    This was my first time ordering plants on line. The service was great. The ordering process was quick and easy. The plants arrived well packaged and healthy in 3 days. The plant quality was superior compared to the plants found at those big box stores like Home Depot, Lowes and Walmart and the pricing was just as competitive. I am very please with the Encore Azaleas. No more picking through unhealthy plants at the big box stores for me. In fact, I going to place another order with Plants by Mail soon.

    This was my first experience with ordering a plant online. I received what was expected. I was kept up to date on shipping information and the plant arrived as scheduled. I couldn’t ask for much more.

    I ordered a combination of Autumn Lilac, Autumn Bravo, and Autumn Royalty. All of the plants arrived quickly, well-packed, and in excellent condition. They looked great right out of the carton. I was impressed.
