Autumn Sangria Azalea Care
Grow this Autumn Sangria Azalea rhododendron across the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 6-10. It has mild cold tolerance and loves the Southern heat. Azalea bushes prefer a planting site with partial shade and protection from the afternoon full sun. The best place to plant azaleas would be a spot with morning sun and afternoon shade.
The Autumn Sangria Azalea growth rate is fast — up to 1 foot per year and eventually reaching up to 4-5 feet tall and up to 3-5 feet wide at maturity. You can prune the Encore Autumn Sangria Azalea in late spring after it has finished blooming to shape it to the desired size.
Azaleas perform best in slightly acidic soil that is well-draining and rich with nutrients. Be sure to water well the first year of planting to establish a strong root system. Fertilize with a slow-release fertilizer or acidic fertilizer in early spring to boost the growth rate.
