Autumn Empress Encore Azalea
Azalea x 'Conles'
Autumn Empress™ has dense evergreen foliage that creates the perfect backdrop for the medium pink semi-double flowers. The leaves are a rich, dark green that show off the pink flowers and the butterflies that love them.
Encore® Azaleas like to grow in sunnier places than spring-blooming azaleas. They make an easy-care hedge that will rarely, if ever, need pruning. If you want to trim your Encore® Azaleas, do so once the spring flowers have faded so as not to clip off the new flower buds that will bloom in mid-summer. Each variety of Encore® Azaleas begins flowering in the spring. Then, after these first blooms fade, new flower buds start to grow, and the plant will flower again from mid-summer right through fall, and won't end until the weather gets cold.
