Presenting the Autumn Angel Azalea, guaranteed to provide a snowstorm of blooms… over and over from spring right through autumn. 

One of the newest hybrids from the “Encore” Azalea Collection… huge 3” wide blooms erupt in a blanket of crisp flowers. These blossoms are pure white and add brightness to any landscape. 

Imagine snow white blooms against the deep evergreen foliage… the perfect compliment to your other plants. This is a shrub whose beauty is unequaled with so many successions of blooms to enjoy. 

Plant in rows for a refreshing blast of spring that lasts up to 9 months… and will provide you with a source of scented cut flowers for your home. The blooms on Autumn Angel are just as pure and white as freshly fallen snow. What a plant, what a show! 

If you like the Encore Azalea Autumn Angel selection, you might also like to add one or more of her high colored cousins to heighten the effect of a colossal kaleidoscope of color outside the windows of your home. 

And you don’t have to fertilize Encore Azaleas … they do fine without any attention. However, if you want to see even more blooms, lightly fertilize. 

Fast Growing Trees Nursery grows your Encore Azaleas larger than most nurseries. Typically, these Azaleas are a year older than ones you’ll find elsewhere… but the benefits are obvious. The roots are well developed, and are ready to support rapid growth and heavy blooming when you plant them around your home. 

Be sure to order your Azaleas soon… the new “Encore” introduction was bigger than anyone anticipated, and we won’t have our Autumn Angels for much longer.

It's Easy to Plant your Autumn Angel Encore Azalea

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Autumn Angel Encore Azalea.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Autumn Angel Encore Azalea gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Autumn Angel Encore Azalea again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Just purchased two autumn angels. It is winter here in Cape Coral, FL but it is quite warm. They have been in the ground for a few weeks, and already are blooming. Look lovely. Love this azalea. Thanks

Does the shrub need alot of sunshine?
Linda T on Apr 15, 2015
I planted these encore azaleas about a month ago. Winter weather set in with night temperature about 30 degrees. Both the Angel and Debutante are now brown and appear dead even though they are evergreen. Is this just shock or should I wait for spring to be sure? I wonder if planting more encores in spring would be better?

What is the best way too relocate an angel encore azaleas?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2014
Best Answer: Have your hole ready to go and larger than the plant and replace soil with good garden soil and vermiculite. Be sure to loosen the roots and then water with quality fertilizer and root stimulator to avoid transplant shock. Various products exist, I use Dyna gro KLN for transplant shock and then their basic solution and Protekt or foliage formula. Do this in the early spring, not after mid May as it is too hot and the plant needs time to readjust itself and re-root itself into the ground.

How long before you have to plant them?
steph on Jun 15, 2014
Best Answer: I received my angel encore azaleas and kept them moist for three weeks before I planted them in the ground.
They are growing beautiful. I planted them last July and they are so much bigger this year and we had a very cold snowy winter.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
