Only Red Azalea that Blooms Spring Summer and Fall

So red, your neighbors will think your lawn is on fire! In fact, they named this plant 'Autumn Embers' for just that reason... their bright red blooms!

These repeat blooming Azaleas will not only make your yard hotter ... your neighbors will be green with envy at your eye-catching plants.

The Encore Azalea series has revolutionized the ornamental plant world. If brilliance is what you seek to give your yard curb appeal, then look no further! Plant in rows and be rewarded with an abundance of red color!

Brilliant scarlet blooms spread across a rich green background. Perhaps the best part- these plants need hardly any attention. Since your Encore Azaleas come with developed root systems, they will quickly adapt to your climate and landscape.

You get plenty of scintillating pizzazz with the Autumn Embers. It is an easy to grow, trouble-free plant we know will set your yard on fire.

You don't even have to fertilize your Azaleas ... they do fine without any help. However, if you want to see how big your blooms can get, lightly fertilize.

Red looks great when complimented with white! Check out our white bloomers, the Autumn Angel Encore Azaleas, for a beautiful contrast.

Our Nursery grows your Azaleas larger than most nurseries, so that your plants will adapt easily to your environment... while giving you huge, recurring blooms. This may be the reason why we've sold so many this year. Order yours soon before we completely sell out!

I bought two plants this spring. By summer one had died completely and the second one is still struggling and is not blooming.

This is more orangey than I thought it would be. The pictures look like a true bright red but it it is more of a red-orange.

This plant is advertized as an easy to grow trouble free plant that is hardy in zones 6-10. I am in zone 7. I bought this plant 2 years in a row and both times the plants died. All their leaves fell off in late fall, there was no "encore" second bloom after the spring either. The first plant died over the 2013-2014 winter. Was a dead twig by spring of 2014. The second plant did almost the same thing, except that one branch came back to life and had some leaves on it in early April. However by mid May of 2015 those leaves turned brown and it is now dead too! A total waste of my money. I have other azaleas in the same area and they all survived. This is definitely not the easy growing cold hardy plant it is supposed to be.

Just purchased two autumn embers. They've been planted here in Cape Coral, FL for about 3 weeks. Unbelievable, but they are flowering now, in the winter. They have about ten blossoms on them. Beautiful red color. Love these azaleas.

Very Please Customer
I was looking for he perfect house warming gift and found this collection of azalea's. Liked he web site, information - helped me pic right for our climate. The plants were well packaged, large and healthy. I've got mine in a pot and it is in full bloom and the person I gave the others to says her is blooming as well. I'm planning on changing states for retirement soon, so I needed an azalea that could span both ranges. I would recommend this site to everyone and it was recommended by Encore Azalea directly so I felt good about that. I would love to have a full brochure.

Really lovely plant that has been blooming since about three days in the ground! Give it a lot of water in a partially sunny area and it will take off. Just a new planting now but we're hopeful for a long and good show.

Lovely Plant
I would highly recommend this Azalea plant. I was delayed in planting in the ground but it just kept on going in its original pot from Fast Growing Trees. It's now in the ground and starting to bloom its lovely flowers. Will probably order another one or so.

Beautiful Azalea
This azalea was magnificent to look at in the fall season as it was the only thing that had some color that late in the season. As to its hardiness I can't say as this is the first winter it has gone through.

In the early Spring and early Fall give your Autumn Embers Encore Azaleas some acidic fertilizer then sit back and watch the show. Autumn Embers Encore Azaleas bloom in the Spring and again in the Fall!

Olga B on Sep 7, 2016
Loved the fact that these are very tolerable of full sun exposure. We've established a bed along the driveway that includes the soft touch holly and the red rhododendron that should offer a perennial green exposure with bright colored flowers through 6-8 months of the year.

I live in Northeast. Will azalea drop it's leaves in winter?
Karen A B on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you live in the lower part of zone 6 (6a), this Azalea should grow for you. It is typically evergreen, however you are in the northern part of its range, and it may drop some of its leaves during winter. This should not be a problem, and the plant should come to life in the spring just as it should. If you live in a higher zone than 6a, you should look for a hardier shrub that will withstand your winters.
How far apart do you plant them for a hedge ?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would plant them three feet apart. They will probably grow three feet wide . They should make a nice hedge this way. If you have a little extra space, you can always fill in a bit with some flowers. Here in Florida they struggle with the heat and don't get too wide. But farther north in the US, they may grow to 3 1/2 or a bit more wide. They are beautiful flowering bushes and colors are awesome. Good luck!
Do these plants lose their leaves during the winter?
Mark S on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in Ca. and my azaleas bloomed during our winter. When I first planted them, they did not bloom for awhile.
In which direction should azaleas be planted, North, South, West or east side of the house?
Monica H on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have mine planed on the east side of my house. I have 2 and they are in a bed about 12 feet from the house. They have done well. They are acid loving plants so make sure you feed them that way.
I have already apple trees planted near by back yard fence; and have space between them and want to fill in with your rose bushes or azaleas. Do you think this is a good idea? What are your thoughts?
Betty F on Feb 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sounds lovely. Give it a try.
does this plant have a fragrance?
Peggy M on Aug 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not that I can smell.
when is the best time of the year to plant?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In the fall is the best time to plant. Then the hot sun doesn't compete with them while trying to get established. And, they have the cold winter to concentrate on developing their roots. Just be sure to plant before it gets frosty . Try September or October. They are beautiful bushes; mine bloomed the first year!
Can "Autumn Embers" Encore Azaleas be grown in planters?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I live in New Orleans and have had one in a container on my porch for 7 years now. It gets west facing afternoon sun, which is brutal, but a drink a day keeps it happy. When the leaves start to droop, from lack of water... I'll give it a drink and it perks right up!
