Azalea Encore© ‘Majesty’




The Encore series of azaleas delivers even more of the standout features that azalea lovers want—repeat blooming, evergreen foliage, and increased sun tolerance. Encore Autumn Majesty includes all of these highlights with rich purple, semi-double flowers and year-round dark green leaves. The petals are slightly ruffled, giving additional texture in the garden. If you need to plant Autumn Majesty in slightly shadier conditions, you can expect the same excellent spring bloom with slightly less abundant repeat flowering throughout the growing season. Its compact size, heat tolerance, and cold hardiness make it one of the best all-around choices for azalea lovers everywhere. Tend to its needs of acidic, well-drained soil, late winter/early spring fertilizing, and regular watering and you’ll be treated to a year’s worth of spectacular garden color!
