Only Purple Azalea that Blooms Spring Summer and Fall
There are few plants in the landscaping industry that live up to the hype. The 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Came in great shape
Big and healthy and I put it in the center of a new bed. I just received it 3 wks ago but I planted about 3 days after receiving and it is thriving. I got it in great healthy shape as usual from FGT.
Don't live long
Honestly the azaleas have not lived very long. We got two and planted them and they both died. We purchased the year warranty and got sent two more and they aren't doing well either.
My poor azaleas
Bought 3 azaleas bushes. 1 is ok looks good. 1 is struggling but i think it will be ok. 1 doesn't look like it will make it. I will keep trying.
I have 5 of these Azaleas' for 3 or more Years now . I reside in Virginia Zone 7 and they only Bloom for a Week or two . When they do Bloom they are very Beautiful . I was hoping for at least 5 Months of Blooms but since they don't I gave them 3 Stars.
Strong and Healthy
I ordered two Autumn Royalty Encore Azaleas. Arrived two days after placing the order. Both were in excellent condition on arrival with moist root balls. I planted them immediately and in spite of the extreme heat we are experiencing they are thriving and growing. Can't wait till they start flowering next season.
Planting & Care
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.
