Around here, we eat, breathe and sleep Encore Azaleas. But, in this case, familiarity only breeds more devotion.
After all, it’s pretty hard not to love an evergreen beauty that graces our gardens with three seasons of vibrant blooms, offers winter interest, and is a cinch to care for. We think you agree, since Encore Azalea is the world’s best-selling, multi-season blooming azalea.
Here are 10 reasons why:
Encore Azaleas flower in spring, summer and fall. Traditional azaleas are finished after their spring blooms, but Encore Azaleas continue to brighten landscapes with striking color and lush foliage, season after season.
Encore® Azaleas are suitable for all landscapes. With dwarf varieties growing from 2-3 feet tall x 3-4 feet wide, and intermediate varieties that can be easily maintained at 4-5 feet tall x 3-4 feet wide, there is an Encore Azalea to fit any space.
Encore Azaleas are low maintenance. They require no deadheading and little pruning to retain good form. If pruning is desired, execute a single pruning immediately after the spring flush of blooms.
Encore® Azaleas are attractive to pollinators. Butterflies and hummingbirds love their vibrant color and funnel shaped blooms.
Encore Azaleas are evergreen. When not in bloom, they provide structure and form, with some varieties also offering winter interest in the form of rich bronze or purple leaves.
