The Autumn Starburst™ Encore® Azalea puts on a very impressive display when it blooms. Two-tone flowers feature coral pink petals with bold white margins, giving the blooms a striped appearance. The Rhododendron ‘Robleze’ is a prolific bloomer in the spring, and this plant will bloom again during the summer and fall. Subsequent blooms tend to produce a small number of flowers, but the plant will still put on a beautiful display.

This plant is a perennial in USDA growing zones 6 through 10. The flowers certainly steal the show, but this Azalea also features dark green foliage that hangs in there all year, allowing this evergreen to provide color and visual interest during the winter. Plant the Autumn Starburst™ Encore® Azalea along foundations, in borders or hedges, or use it in a container. This Azalea will attract butterflies and birds.

Autumn Starburst™ Encore® Azalea Plant Care

Find a spot that receives 4 to 6 hours of sunlight each day because this plant needs full sun to part shade to flourish. Azaleas prefer slightly acidic soil, and the soil should also be rich and allow for good drainage. Established plants need water maybe once or twice a week, but new plants will need water up to three times a week for the first year. Fertilize in the spring and early summer to encourage new growth and more flowers.

This plant stays compact and has a rounded growth habit, so it naturally maintains a good shape, and significant pruning is not generally needed.

Autumn Starburst™ Encore® Azalea Plant Spacing

The Autumn Starburst™ Encore® Azalea will grow 3 feet tall and 3.5 feet wide. For mass plantings or hedges, space the plants 2.5 feet apart to create a consistent wall of greenery. Space plants further apart if you want each individual plant to stand on its own.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
