Turn up the heat in your garden with Autumn BravoTM Encore® Azalea! Its three-inch blazing red-orange flowers burst on the scene in spring and again in summer against evergreen foliage, which looks great all winter long. Its dwarf mounding habit makes it useful as a foundation plant, in a mixed border, or even in a container in warmer climates.
Azaleas have a beautiful natural mounding form that goes great with shade/part-sun-loving perennials like hostas, ferns, coral bells (Heuchera) and Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa). For a colorful, easy-care combo, mix them with shrubs like hydrangeas and rhododendrons.
Autumn Bravo Encore Azalea Care
Plant your azalea in part shade to full sun. Make sure the soil drains well. (If you’re not sure your soil drains well, dig the hole and pour in a bucket of water. If water remains in the soil after an hour, your soil does not drain well.) After planting, mulch the base of the plant. Water after planting and during the first year to establish. Azaleas appreciate a slow-release granular fertilizer in the spring. Wait until after blooming to do any light trimming.
Autumn Bravo Encore Azalea Spacing
Plant these shrubs 4.5 to 5 feet apart, center on center. Can be spaced tighter (up to 4 feet apart) to create a hedge or garden mass. If planting in a container, choose a large, heavy pot with an opening of at least 16 inches and that holds several gallons of potting soil.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)
We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty whether you’re new or an expert.

Examples would be hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, disease, insects & many other factors. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all the unknowns and will replace your plant if it moves on to the plant afterlife.
The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant purchase.
