Encore® Azaleas are the world's best-selling reblooming azalea with rich, colorful blooms in spring, summer and fall.

When they were first released to the market 15 or so years ago, Encore Azaleas promised to be the next great thing for your garden. After all, who wouldn't want an Azalea that blooms more often than just spring?

Our experience with these Azaleas in the last couple of years has proven to be positive, even though in the Pacific Northwest, they don't re-bloom as much as they would, say, in the southern US. With that said, they are still a fabulous plant for our temperate climate.

There are 29 varieties to choose from and of these, we currently stock the following:

azalea autumn empress

Azalea 'Autumn Empress'

Azalea x 'conles'

This Encore Azalea variety has dense dark green foliage that contrasts nicely with the medium, semi-double pink bloom. While nice as a specimen plant, it also makes an excellent foundation plant. Grows 4ft high by 3ft high. Foliage takes on a bronze hue in winter.

azalea autumn embers

Azalea 'Autumn Embers'

Azalea x 'conleb'

Autumn Embers is one of the most popular varieties of Encore Azalea. It features deep orange-red semi-double blooms on mid to dark green foliage. Grows 3ft tall by 3.5ft wide.

azalea autumn angel

Azalea 'Autumn Angel'

Azalea x 'robleg'

One of the newest introductions to the Encore Azalea line, Autumn Angel features pure white flowers that appear irridescent in the morning light. The combinations of the stark, single white blooms and the glossy deep green foliage make it a wonderful addition to any garden. Grows 3ft tall by 3ft wide.

azalea autumn royalty

Azalea 'Autumn Royalty'

Azalea x 'conlec'

A robust upright variety with deep green foliage and large rich, single, purple blooms. 'Autumn Royalty' was voted Azalea of the year by the American Rhododendron society. Grows 4.5ft high and 4ft wide.

azalea autumn sundance

Azalea 'Autumn Sundance'

Azalea x 'roblef'

'Autumn Sundance' Azalea provides an ever changing color palette for your garden. The deep pink blooms contrast with the rich green foliage in the blooming months. In winter, foliage turns a reddish hue for additional interest. Grows 3.5ft tall and 4ft wide.

Growing Encore Azaleas

All Encore Azaleas perform best in part sun to part shade, although they will tolerate more sun if kept slightly moister. You will also get more blooms if the plant can get at least 4-6 hours of sunlight a day. A moist, well drained, acidic soil is best. Deadhead spent flowers. Fertilize with a Rhodo & Azalea food in early spring. Do not fertilize after August. Most Encore Azaleas are hardy in USDA zones 6-9. In the Pacific Northwest, they should be fine in winter, although they will benefit from some protection during extreme cold spells.
