'Encore' is a breakthrough in Azalea breeding. Like all Azaleas, it has amazingly extravagant clusters of trumpet shaped flowers, but whereas other Azaleas flower just once during April and May, 'Encore' will also flower for a second time from July to September, so it effectively flowers from spring until autumn!
'Autumn Fire' produces blooms in the most striking shade of bright red. A real attention-grabbing flower, they will almost completely cover the plant and are set off to perfection by the glossy dark evergreen foliage. Making this a gorgeous garden shrub all year round.
Happy in sun or light shade and perfect for growing in containers - where it'll make a striking addition to doorways, terraces, and balconies - but also happy in the flower borders. Just the thing for bringing a bold mass of colour to the spring garden for month after month.
Azaleas are easy to care for, needing little maintenance or pruning. Requiring acidic soil, incorporate plenty of ericaceous compost when planting and keep moist.
Supplied as an established plant in an 8cm pot, ready to plant.
