The Autumn Moonlight™ Encore® Azalea grows rapidly into an upright evergreen shrub, reaching 5 feet tall, but remaining just 3 or 4 feet wide. It has semi-double pure white flowers, not just in spring, but in summer and in abundance in fall too. In winter the rich-green leaves make a perfect background plant and allow you to build height in a narrow space. With its neutral flower color it will blend with every other plant in your garden, and white blooms lift and brighten all parts of your garden, especially the shadier spots, where darker color can simply disappear. Use it to fill a corner, create background for smaller shrubs, and even as a specimen in a large pot. Wherever you grow it, you will love it.

  • A profusion of white flowers from spring to fall
  • Unique taller, more upright evergreen azalea
  • Extra sun-tolerant, and grows in shade too
  • Perfect foundation plant and background shrub
  • Rapid and healthy growth is easy

The Autumn Moonlight Encore Azalea will grow well in zones 7, 8 and 9. It grows in full sun, partial-shade, or light full-shade, such as beneath deciduous trees. It should be grown in acidic soil, with a pH value of 6.5 or lower, and every spring mulch with peat-moss and fertilize with azalea fertilizer. This plant has no significant pests or diseases, and it is very easy to grow, rapidly becoming full-sized and making a wonderful plant for so many parts of your garden.
