Looking for some re-blooming azaleas? Check out the Autumn Sunset Encore Azalea!

The Autumn Sunset Azalea is a bold, red-orange color. Blooms are 2.5 inches in size and cover this azalea giving contrast to its dark green foliage. Look for 3 flushes of blooms throughout the year providing color from Spring to Fall.

The Autumn Sunset will reach a total height of up to 3 feet tall and about 4 feet wide at maturity. When planting, look for an area that has well drained soils. Encore Azaleas thrive in partial sun.

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.

Beautiful Encores!

I ordered a total of 15 encores from Planting Tree. They arrived in groups so initially, I was abit concerned because I had contracted help to get them planted and needed them to arrive at the same time. The staff worked with me to ensure my plants arrived in time to fulfill my contract. And this encore, in particular, is spectacular in color! But the other encores that are blooming, are just as beautiful!

Encore Azaleas Sunset

The azaleas came well packaged and appeared to be in good shape. One even had a bloom on it, so I know I got the right color.

Healthy Plants, Great Customer Service

We had a great experience with Planting Tree! Our azaleas arrived carefully packed, looking happy, healthy and ready to go in the ground. Some of them were blooming in the box! What an easy way to spruce up the yard without having to leave home -- especially in this time of Covid-19 and social distancing. Thanks, Planting Tree!

Excellent product

I bought five azalea bushes that when shipped apparently were in excellent condition. They had some of the most healthy limbs, leaves, and root systems I have ever purchased anywhere. The shipping method damaged two of them because shippers left boxes on end and not on sides and the weight of the top one damaged the tops of two of the bottom ones. Otherwise, an outstanding purchase.
