The striking Autumn Embers™ Encore® Azalea will set your landscape apart like no other with its fiery deep orange-red blooms. Its thick bloom coverage continues to produce through three full seasons, adding a stunningly dramatic effect almost all year long!
This small evergreen azalea can be planted alone to add color, or in a hedge row for a beautifully dramatic effect. It is also an excellent selection as a widely spreading, flowering groundcover.
The Autumn Embers™ does well in partial sun with afternoon shade for at least 4-6 hours. It prefers moist, well-drained soil with a low pH. It can grow up to 3 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide. The red flowers do not like full sun.
The Autumn Embers’™ orange-red, 2.5-inch semi-double blooms stand out against its dark green leaves and foliage. It is exceptionally low maintenance and a hardy, trouble-free plant.
This aesthetic plant will make a colorful statement in any landscape. The Encore series of azaleas is different from their traditional southern counterpart…they re-bloom
Grow this flowering shrub across the United States in USDA growing zones 6-10. The deep red blooming azaleas bloom in spring and last through summer or fall.
Be sure to water thoroughly the first year of planting to establish a strong root system.
