Rhododendron ‘Conlen’ PP11628

 

Autumn Bravo® Encore Azalea is a dense, rounded shrub with single deep orange-red flowers that appear in profusion in the spring and then again for a lighter encore in the fall. This hardy shrub can be grown in full sun and average soil. Leaves are light green and stay year round, to offer interest even through the more dreary months. They are an ideal flowering shrub of intermediate size for garden beds and borders, foundation plantings or large containers.

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.
