Autumn Lilac™ Encore® Azalea
azalea x robles PP22,762
Autumn Lilac's brilliant lavender blooms are accented with darker purple freckles and stand out against its evergreen foliage. Autumn Lilac was bred for its cold hardy tendencies and selected for its rounded growth habit.
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.
