Only Purple Azalea that Blooms Spring Summer and Fall

There are few plants in the landscaping industry that live up to the hype. They Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea is one that not only lives up to your expectations, but surpasses them.

This Azalea is turning some heads. Southern Living Magazine has taken notice too, and reported several cases where they've bloomed for 9 months out of the year.

These Azaleas are second to none, and were voted 'Azalea of the Year' in 2004 by the American Rhododendron Society. Their long-lasting blooms add color to your landscape in the spring, summer, and even fall... imagine bright purple flowers during seasons where everything else is a dull green.

Not just pretty, but tough too. It is virtually care-free... just plant your Azaleas and watch them bloom and bloom and bloom. You don't even have to fertilize them, though you can if you want to see how big these flowers can get.

Fast Growing Trees Nursery knows that a well developed root system is why your plants thrive. That's why we grow your Encore Azaleas larger than other nurseries. This helps your plant adapt to your climate while giving you an abundance of huge blooms.

Since these Azaleas have become one of the most popular flowering shrubs in the landscaping industry, we've sold nearly all our supply. Order yours soon before we run out.

Blue Ribbon Winner at my Regional Flower Show
Spectacular large bright purple-pink flowers and gorgeous large dark green leaves make this azalea a winner. I planted 2 of these beauties this Spring and was amazed at the show of flowers it produced in September. By late October the show was still going on and I entered a branch in the horticultural division of our regional flower show (nearly 400 horticultural entries) and won a blue ribbon in my category. These plants arrived in perfect condition. I couldn't be happier.

A LARGE PLANT GROWING WELL
This was a very large plant when I received it and is growing very well. I believe I will have a few flowers before frost. I love the Encore azaleas. I have three now and plant on more next spring. Thanks so much.

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea
I bought this azalea and had it shipped to N.C. for my daughters bday gift. She was so excited when she received it. She messaged me pictures of it and it was so green and healthy. And larger than anything I could find around northern Mi. At 50% off it was a great buy. I can't wait for the pictures of when it is in full bloom!

Wonderful
It's wonderful that it blooms all the seasons in Houston TX!

I bought it last August, 2015. Planted in September, almost immediately after planted, it bloomed so many flowers. The amazing thing is it continue to bloom all the time, even now as low as 34F, it still blooms. So I would say it blooms all season in Houston, TX.

And it's very beautiful especially this winter season almost no houses around mine had bloom!

Hope I could buy more of them but a little expensive. Will see.....

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea
I purchased six of these azaleas and planted them in the Fall. The Winter was severe in Northern NV and I thought they might not survive. I did a light pruning and have been watering them. I've noticed tiny new leaves starting to grow and actually have a flower ready to open! Since they survived last Winter, I am sure they will thrive from here on out.

Haven't had them long enough to rate.....but they came through shipping looking just great. I planted them right away, about a month ago, and they are doing real good. Covered them when we had a couple frosty nights, but they are well protected where I planted them on the east side of our garage. So far our weather has been warm for this time of year. I put pine needles around them, and have my fingers crossed that we don't have a real bad Michigan winter.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea


Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea Planting Diretions Your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Azalas can tolerate full sun but prefer to receive partial shade especially in the afternoon. Plant Your Autumn Royal Azaleas two feet apart for a hedge.

Autumn Royalty Encore Azaleas prefer slightly acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Keep your soil moist and not over saturated. Make sure that your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea doesn't sit in standing water.

Autumn Royalty Encore Azaleas often don't need any fertilizer, but you can give your Azaleas acidic fertilizer early every Spring and Fall to give your flowers a boost. Bright purple flowers will first emerge early in the Spring and your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea will keep blooming into the Fall.

Would Antumn Royalty Azalea grow with just morning sun?
Thomas K on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Ye,s Autumn Royalty would LOVE to have morning sun and afternoon shade!
Will they do well on north side of house?
Jeffrey S on Oct 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Encore Azaleas do best with morning sun and afternoon shade. In full shade, they do not grow as densely or bloom as well. If your proposed site has at least a few hours of morning sun, you should be fine.
How should they be trimmed to make them grow taller and bigger?
Annette H on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The size of a plant is in its genes, and trimming it won't make it taller or bigger - it will make it grow more densely and it can keep it smaller than its natural size. Your Autumn Royalty will grow fairly fast (8-12 inches a year, depending on growing conditions) to its mature size of 4-5 feet tall and 4 feet wide, but it will take a few years to get there. If you need something bigger, please consider a plant that naturally grows to a larger size. By the way, when pruning an Azalea, please do it only in the spring or early summer (preferably right after bloom) before the buds are formed for next year's bloom.
Are the leaves evergreen?
Diane B on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Encore Azaleas are evergreen. However, in the northern portion of its range (zone 6) a really cold winter can make a lot of their leaves turn brown and fall. Fortunately, spring will bring new growth and the plant will be fresh and green again.
Can this be used as a hedge bordering a sidewalk? I wasn't something that has flowers but that can also easily be maintained
A shopper on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have various Azaleas 2.5 feet apart as a continuous hedge. It took them a few years to grow together, but now they are easy to shape and maintain, and I get various colored flowers each spring.
can the azalea survive in a large ceramic pot instead of the ground?
Lrod737 on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our recommendation would be to plant these in the ground. If you would like to put them in a pot I would suggest a fairly large one.
Can I plant them now in SEPT??
A shopper on Sep 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We recommend that you plant 6-8 weeks before your first hard frost.
Will these grow ok with limited morning sun and or just afternoon sun?
Marty B on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I find these will grow just fine with morning or afternoon sun. Don't over water and once a year sprinkle some iron on them for nutrients so their leaves will be nice and green and flower.
are these azaleas evergreen?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think it depends on how far north you are. We're in Lexington, KY, which is about the northern limit for this species. We had a harsh winter last year. The azaleas survived but lost some leaves and some turned brown. This summer they have bounced back slowly, but have not blossomed.
I live in zone 5 and my neighbors have azaleas in their yard.is this safe ? I would like to try one I got one in a planter
dorothy o on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Encore Azaleas that we carry would not be recommended for a zone 5. They would most likely not survive the cold winters there.
