People who adore spring blooming azaleas can now enjoy an explosion of Encore Azalea’s color season after season. Each of the 23 Encore varieties begins their performance with the spring flowering season. Once this first act of blooming concludes, new shoots begin to grow and set buds.
The Encore Azalea’s second act opens when these buds begin blooming into full flower mid-summer. The curtain drops on this unique bloom season with the onset of cold weather. But, the show goes on. As an encore, these exceptional azaleas flower again with traditional spring azaleas and the process starts over.
Encore Azaleas need protection like most other azaleas in East Tennessee. Plant them on the east or north side of your landscape. Apply at least 3 inches of organic mulch in late fall. Water every month in winter to ensure adequate moisture.
