Encore Azaleas

The Beauty of Reblooming Azaleas: Encore Azalea ®
More Than Just Spring Flowering Shrubs

Finally there is more to an Azalea than just a couple weeks of incredible blooms and only evergreen color to redeem the rest of the year. Now there are reblooming azaleas that provide weeks of colorful flowers throughout the year in repeated flush of blooms. Using Encore Azaleas in the Garden Encore Azaleas are unique because after the first flush of spring flowers the shrubs produce new shoots and new flowering buds. This new growth means new flowers during the summer and again sporadically throughout the fall months as well. Once winter frosts set in the blooming will stop but the evergreen foliage will remain attractive throughout the winter cold. Use Encore Azaleas where long flowering seasons will be appreciated, in mixed perennial borders, as part of foundation plantings in large masses of color or in large containers as accent specimens. Planting Encore Azaleas Plant your Encore Azaleas in a part sun area where they will receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight but be protected from heat stress or drought conditions. It is recommended that gardeners mulch their azalea plants to help conserve water. Dig a planting hole twice as wide as it is deep and be sure to mix in plenty of organic material such as peat moss or compost. Caring for Encore Azaleas Gardeners should be sure to provide plenty of water during the first year while Azaleas are establishing themselves but after Encore Azaleas are well-established they only need regular watering during periods of drought like most landscape shrubs. Pruning Encore Azaleas should be done only as needed to maintain a pleasing shape or remove dead branches and is best done immediately following the first, spring flush of blooms.
