The Autumn Starburst® Encore® Azalea is a wonderful smaller evergreen azalea growing 3 feet tall and just a little wider. It begins the year in spring with an abundance of 2½ inch blooms of ruffled petals, with a big center of orange-red with darker veining, surrounded by pure white. After a brief rest blooming begins again in July, and continues with growing intensity right into fall to the first frost. A perfect brightly-colored plant for fronting shrub beds, growing along paths and driveways, or growing in pots and planters – especially if you don’t have the acidic soil this plant grows best in.

  • Abundant bicolor blooms or orange-red and white
  • Flowers in April, and then begins again in July right into fall
  • Dwarf plant about 3 feet tall and wide
  • Great for more sunny places than most azaleas enjoy
  • Exactly the right size for pots and planters

For maximum reblooming, plant the Autumn Starburst® Encore® Azalea in a brighter spot than you might choose for azaleas – even full sun is good if the soil is moist enough. Some afternoon shade is better if it isn’t. The ideal soil is moist but well-drained, rich in organic material and with a pH below 6.5. If you don’t have suitable soil, grow it in a pot with soil and fertilizer designed for acid-loving plants. This plant is usually free of any pest or disease problems, and easy to grow. Trimming is not usually needed, and never cut the new stems that grow after the spring flowering – these carry the blooms still to come.
