Autumn Royalty PP10580

Botanical Name : Azalea Encore

Autumn Royalty™ Encore® Azalea has four-inch pink to purple blooms in spring, continuing into fall. Works well in containers, as an accent or as foundation plantings. This broadleaf evergreen also makes a superior hedge, providing four seasons of color. Plant high to promote good drainage. Azaleas perform best in acidic soil, which can be amended with chelated iron if necessary. Don’t allow the soil to become dry until established. Prune only to shape after the first bloom period in spring. Fertilize in late winter or early spring to give the upcoming blooms a boost. Plant singly as a specimen in the shrub border or as a hedge, 3 feet apart, center to center.
