The Autumn Bonfire™ Encore® Azalea is a stunning new type of evergreen azalea that blooms in spring, and then has flowers over the summer, ending with a full flush of blooms in fall – something unique to these plants, which normally bloom just once a year. With large, bright red flowers, it will brighten your garden in both sun and shade, as these plants are also more sun-loving than other azaleas. This plant grows vigorously into a bush about 3 feet tall, and a little more across, so it is perfect for smaller spaces, or for mass-planting across your garden. If your soil is not suitable for azaleas, or even if it is, this compact bush is perfect for growing in pots and planters, which should have drainage holes and be filled with potting soil for acid-loving plants.

  • Repeat-flowering evergreen azalea plant
  • Intense blooming of pure red flowers in spring and fall
  • Thrive in sun, as well as shade
  • Great blooming pot plant
  • Vigorous and fast-growing

Plant your Autumn Bonfire Encore Azalea in full sun, partial shade or light full-shade, such as on the north side of your house, or beneath deciduous trees. In hotter states it will prefer with some afternoon shade. It will grow best in moist, well-drained soil that is acidic – ideally between 5.5 and 6.5 on the pH scale. If you do not have acid soil, grow in containers or treat with chelated iron. Keep your plant moist, but not wet, and it is easy to grow, with no significant pests or diseases to worry about. This is the most popular type of azalea in the world, for its repeat flowering, so start growing them now.
