Rhododendron ‘Robleg’ PP15227

 

'Autumn Angel®' Encore azalea is a hardy azalea with a long blooming season. With large, white, fragrant flowers, this plant will continue to bloom from spring to frost. 'Autumn Angel' has evergreen foliage and is considered a dwarf, reaching a uniform size of 3 feet tall and wide. Growing well in sun or shade, this azalea will attract butterflies and hummingbirds, but resist deer, making it a favorite of gardeners and landscapers. 'Autumn Angel®' Encore azalea makes a great low hedge, or as a specimen mixed with the darker colored Encore azaleas, such as 'Autumn Sunset' and 'Autumn Carnation.'

Joseph's Take

Joseph's Take

All Encores have many uses in the landscape, mainly because they are proficient bloomers and we all love color! When I’m choosing an Encore for a landscape, I usually choose one that will look nice next its surrounding plants as well as any architectural structures that may come into play. All Encore Azaleas have beautiful flowers, I have always loved the purple varieties.

Be sure to use a well drained soil medium when planting any Azalea, Rhododendron, Mountain Laurel, or Camellia as they all prefer fall planting with less watering than you might think. In NC our soil is clay so we prefer to use pine bark soil conditioner when planting these varieties.
