1 review(s) for AUTUMN EMPRESS® ENCORE® AZALEA

  1. Julie - Apr 28, 2011
    Texas (Hardiness Zone: 7)

    Very nice plant. Foliage is a pretty dark green, love the flower color. The only pesky thing about Encores is that the blooms take a very long time to fall off naturally, and thus require by-hand deadheading unless you want dead flowers on your shrub for at least a month. Blooms 3 times a year for me in Dallas, TX.

AUTUMN EMPRESS® ENCORE® AZALEA Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Rhododendron is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Prefers slightly acidic well drained soils. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer.
