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 soil that drains well and is acidic. 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 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.

The Autumn Embers Encore Azalea adds vibrant color to the southern landscape and beyond.  Encore azaleas are excellent for borders and mass plantings.  This evergreen shrub jazzes up gardens and mixed beds.  At 3 to 4 feet tall and wide at maturity this stunning azalea can even be used in foundation plantings.

I am very pleased.

The plants were beautiful right out of the box. It is obvious they have been very well cared for as they grew. The packaging was first rate and withstood the rough handling of the carriers. Thank you for a job well done.

I still need to send in a picture.

I purchased 2, 3 gal azaleas that came together in one box.If I had seen these bushes in an actual garden center, they would have been in the clearance section perhaps at 50 to 75 percent off. Or thrown out. They were sent unsecured in a box with no instructions on it, so it came on end. Upon opening, branches were broke off and mostly missing leaves or the leaves were brown/discolored. I will never purchase anything from this place, again.
