Autumn Debutante Encore Azaleas give you recurring pink flowers from spring until Thanksgiving… or later!
Autumn Debutante will give you 3 distinct seasons of blooms … spring, summer and fall. In spring, the Debutante will color your world for weeks on end with full fragrant blooms.
While this is the expected from any azalea, what would it be worth to you if your new beautiful pink bloomer repeated that scented show in summer and fall as well? These shrubs add an abundance of pink blooms to your yard… while everything else is a dull green.
Imagine your front walk lined with amazing shades of rich pink like a marching cotillion to your front door, three seasons out of the year.
Even better, you don’t have to fertilize Encore Azaleas … they do fine with hardly any maintenance. We feed ours anyway… just to see how big we can get the blooms to grow. It isn’t necessary, but if you want a high performing Azalea, lightly fertilize for an amazing show.
Matures to 4 ft. tall, and will fit anywhere in your landscape… but be sure to plant these where everyone can see.
Fast Growing Trees Nursery grows your Encore Azaleas larger than most nurseries. We make sure that your Azaleas have well developed roots… so they bloom quicker, grow faster and are more adaptable.
Unfortunately, we only have a limited supply of Autumn Debutante Encore Azaleas each year. They’re in such high demand, they’ll likely sell out soon. Be sure to order these amazing bloomers in time for the next show of flowers!
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Autumn Debutante 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.
Next, separate the roots of your Autumn Debutante 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.
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 Debutante 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.
