The Autumn Sangria™ Encore® Azalea has very large, open flowers of a bright pink-purple color. These are produced not only in spring, but also through summer and fall, right to the first frost. The plant itself grows rapidly – up to 12 inches a year – to become a dense dome of evergreen foliage 4 feet tall and wide. Make it part of the foundation planting around your home, grow it in beds, singly or in groups, plant it beneath deciduous trees in a woodland setting, and make low informal hedges and barriers with it. Everywhere you use it you will love the bright color – and even in winter the evergreen foliage is lighter in tone and looks great.

  • Vibrant pink-purple flowers 4 inches across
  • Full, rounded evergreen bush to 4 feet tall
  • Flowers in spring, summer and fall
  • Hardy and reliable even in zone 6
  • Grows in sun, partial-shade, or light full-shade

Grow the Autumn Sangria Encore Azalea even in zone 6, where many evergreen azaleas will not grow well. Grow it throughout all the warmer zones too, in full sun, partial shade, or light shade such as under trees or on the north side of a building. For best growth plant in moist but well-drained soil – wet soil is not a good environment for it. It should be grown in acid soil with a pH lower than 6.5, and if you don’t have soil like this, plant it in a pot or planter box, using soil for acid-loving plants. It has no serious pests or diseases, and its rapid growth will soon turn it into a big feature in your garden.
