Autumn Twist PP12133

Botanical Name : Azalea Encore

The Autumn Twist™ Encore® Azalea is a fast growing azalea that rewards the gardener with pink and purple bicolor flowers throughout the growing season, spring through fall. This broadleaf evergreen is sure to become the star of your landscape. 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. Don’t allow the soil to become dry until established. Azaleas perform best in acidic soil, which can be amended with chelated iron if necessary. 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. When establishing a hedge, plant 4’ apart, center to center. Plant 5’ to 6 ‘ apart, center to center, in the shrub border or as foundation plantings.
