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.
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.
You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in

Customer Reviews & Photos
Love the shipment, but Chicago already had snow I am moving them indoors until the spring, they are way too nice to leave them outside. Have a second floor so will put at the landing for maybe sun and light
Excellent. Nice color and arrived with new buds. Since have had flowers. Very pretty to have azelea this time of year.
Happy again! Large, strong, & healthy.
This azalea is stunning and I get so many comments about how great it looks. It was a wonderful addition to our front porch area to add a pop of color.
A perfect experience as always, allowing for a week delay in delivery, presumably due to covid-19. Plants were a tad dry but rebounded with gusto. As a CA resident i would love to see you offer more plants suitable for zone 9....ie Sacramento Valley.
