The new Autumn Sunburst Encore Azalea is an azalea you won’t regret planting! The Encore Sunburst produces bicolor coral pink blossoms with soft white edges. These gorgeous flowers emerge in greatest numbers during a massive initial spring bloom. Afterward, they willproduce 2-3 more slightly smaller reblooms before the onset of winter. With warmer zones having the potential to see even more bloom cycles!
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.
