Autumn Royalty Azalea – 3 Gallon

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea offers vibrant year-round color to any garden. Autumn Royalty is a robust, upright variety with deep green foliage and large, rich purple blooms. Royalty was voted Azalea of the Year by the American Rhododendron Society. Unlike many traditional azaleas, Encore azaleas bloom best in full sun, so choose an area of your yard where they can receive at least 4-6 hours of sunlight. Autumn Royalty works well in foundation plantings or as a low-growing hedge. Be sure to plant your Encore Azaleas in acidic to slightly acidic soil to maximize your bloom yield. Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer after the threat of the last frost has dissipated and feed once more in the summer to help you Encore bloom through fall. Encore Azalea is the world’s best-selling multi-season blooming azalea. In many areas of the country, Encore Azalea bloom during 3 seasons of the year-spring, summer, and fall. And, for areas of the country where azaleas don’t traditionally thrive, such as those in USDA hardiness Zone 6 and 7, you will see a spring or summer bloom, but not a fall bloom before your temperatures drop.

CARE

Hardy in USDA Zones 6a-10b.

Plant in Full Sun for best results. Encore Azaleas need to receive 4-6 hours of direct sunlight or all-day lightly filtered sun. Consequently, too little sun will result in the Encore Royalty having reduced bloom potential.

This purple blooming azalea prefers well-draining, rich garden soil with a slightly acidic pH. Poor draining soil often results in root rot.

Water regularly after planting, 2-3 times per week during average weather conditions. However, increased water will be required in times of intense heat and drought. After a growing season or two, your plant will rarely need supplementary water.

Fertilize your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea in spring with a slow-release Acidic Fertilizer to keep the blooms coming season after season!
