Encore Azaleas

More Blooms, More Often!

People who adore spring blooming azaleas can now enjoy an explosion of Encore azalea color season after season!

Each of the many Encore varieties begin their performance with the spring flowering season. Once this “first act” of blooming concludes, new shoots begin to grow and set new buds. The Encore Azalea’s “second act” opens when these buds begin blooming into full color during the summer. This unique bloom season continues through the fall, with the curtain dropping with the onset of cold weather. The show starts all over again in the spring!

LIGHT: Encores can grow in full sun or filtered shade. Too much shade will result in reduced blooms and poor performance.

SOIL: Does best in slightly acidic, well-drained soil with some organic matter.

WATER: Encore azaleas like to have slightly moist soil when first planted. Water plants in summer to keep soil moist but not wet. Encores should not need regular watering after the first year unless there are periods of excessive drought.

FERTILIZER: Use Holly Tone in spring or any azalea-specific fertilizer.   Do not fertilize after August.
