Fifty years ago, Southern Living magazine’s first cover featured a Mobile, Ala., home overlooking a verdant, azalea-laden lawn. For the magazine’s celebratory 50th anniversary issue, we at Encore Azalea teamed up with Southern Living editors to step back in time and recreate the photo.

Encore Azalea is the best azalea you’ll ever plant. Encore Azaleas are the world’s best-selling re-blooming azalea with rich, colorful blooms in spring, summer and fall. Encore Azaleas have 33 varieties of bloom colors and sizes to choose from and thrive equally well in high filtered shade or sunny locations – unlike any other azalea in the world.
