Description

Low Maintenance, Evergreen shrub that keeps blooming over and over again!

If you plan on planting a cluster of azaleas or are just looking to add color to your home, Encore Azaleas are the perfect choice.

The Autumn Angel Encore Azalea displays tons of white blooms from spring all the way to fall! This evergreen azalea will look great all year around. Flowers are prominent for an extended growing season and fall and winter gives way to foliage that is still intact. No more naked azaleas in the winter. Not only does this shrub look great all year around, but it is also disease resistant, pest resistant, and heat tolerant.

Thinking about planting as a hedge? The Autumn Angel will look amazing. How about a cool s-shaped hedge with some smaller plants to give a nice layering effect? Encore azaleas paired with Emerald Arborvitae for height can give your home a nice warm look. Place 2 Emerald Arborvitae on each side of the windows and a couple of encore azaleas under the window. This is a simple design that is low maintenance. Check out our Landscape Designers gallery for some landscape ideas.

Plant you encore azalea in full sun for more blooms. They like well drained soil, so don't plant in a wet muddy area. These plants are low maintenance. Use our special fertilizer for optimum blooms.

How To Care

When planting your azalea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive.

Planting time: Spring and fall are ideal times to plant azaleas. However, if you avoid freezing and extremely hot temperatures you can plant any time of the year

Sun: Full sun to part shade. Encore azaleas will perform best with at least 4-6 hours of sun. While your Encore azalea will still grow and even bloom in shady areas they are less likely to rebloom and the blooms won't be as prolific.

Soil: Azaleas prefer acidic soil that drains well. If you have alkaline soil, be sure to amend it. To acidify your soil amend with compost, elemental sulfur, or use fertilizers specific for acid loving plants. Mulching with pine straw or pine bark will help over time as they begin to break down, but are not an immediate solution. To improve drainage in something like a heavy clay soil, add compost and be sure to loosen up the soil well before planting.

Fertilizer: Choose a balanced slow release fertilizer. Fertilize in late winter or early spring before flowering for best results.

Pruning: You don’t need to prune Encore azaleas, but pruning your flowering shrubs after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant. You can use pruning to control size, but don't prune of more than 1/3 of the plant for best results.

Landscape Ideas

The Autumn Angel Encore Azalea adds pure white color to the southern landscape and beyond. Azaleas are excellent for borders and mass plantings. This evergreen shrub jazzes up gardens and mixed beds. At 2 to 3 feet tall and wide at maturity this stunning azalea can even be used in foundation plantings. Try this flowering shrub in a container to add a little class to your entryway, porch, patio, or deck. For borders or low hedges, plant about 2 feet apart on center. Otherwise, plant about 4 feet apart to give your plants space in-between.

For additional options, be sure to browse our Azalea and Evergreen Shrub collection.

Great plants!

Plants arrived in tip-top condition, well packed and ready for planting! I was planning to plant them in a large planter, but while I was waiting for the planter liner to be delivered, I had to plant one of the azaleas in the ground so it’s roots could spread out. The other 2 are doing fine in their pots, even blooming!

Great experience

Plants came quickly and were very healthy right out of the box. Would recommend to anyone seeking specific shrubs like I was.

Repeat customer

This was the first time things were not perfect. One azalea has dead leaves (black) all on one side and both plants had mildew and mild. Will call on Monday to discuss. All my prior orders have been wonderful - so perhaps something to do with the hurricane. Will still order in the future if my complaint is handled well.

Beautiful Plants

Originally I ordered 3 of the Encore Angel for a certain bed, but then my husband ordered 5 more Encore plants. He ordered 3 of the Encore Blaze, one of the Amethyst, and one of Autumn Fire. All were 3 gallon size and came in excellent condition. We changed our minds of where we were going to plant them. We ended up putting the 3 Blaze plants in the bed we were going to plant the Angel plants. The Amethyst went alone in a different spot in the front yard and then planted the Autumn Fire in our back yard in a perfect spot. He ended up putting the 3 white Encore Angels in beautiful pots for our deck. We couldn't be happier with the quality of the plants as well with how quickly the plants came. Customer support was excellent and very helpful. I would definitely recommend The Planting Tree and am sure we will be ordering from them in the future without hesitation.
