The Autumn Twist™ Encore® Azalea, Azalea x ‘Conlep’ PP#12133, is a fast growing azalea that rewards the gardener with pink and purple bicolor flowers throughout the growing season, spring through fall. This broadleaf evergreen is sure to become the star of your landscape. Works well in containers, as an accent or as foundation plantings. This broadleaf evergreen also makes a superior hedge, providing four seasons of color.

Autumn Twist™ Encore® Azalea Care

Plant high to promote good drainage. Don’t allow the soil to become dry until established. Azaleas perform best in acidic soil, which can be amended with chelated iron if necessary. Prune only to shape after the first bloom period in spring. Fertilize in late winter or early spring to give the upcoming blooms a boost.

Autumn Twist™ Encore® Azalea Spacing

When establishing a hedge, plant 4’ apart, center to center. Plant 5’ to 6 ‘ apart, center to center, in the shrub border or as foundation plantings.

Plant Shipping

Time of Order:

Winter to Early Spring

  • Is it warm enough to plant in the customer’s growing zone?
  • What areas does the plant has to travel through from our nursery to your home?
  • Is the plant at the nursery ready to ship.
    • The plants from the South will naturally be ready sooner than the plants from the North (If you have questions or concerns about when a plant will ship please email us at info@plantaddicts.com)


  • If there is extreme heat we’ll delay shipping.  
    • We’ll have to review what areas the plants are traveling through along with your location

Fall into Winter

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


  • Get your order in now to reserve you plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an email with tracking information. Depending on the above criteria we’ll ship your plant(s) towards the beginning of the following week from your order date. We put together this helpful guide for what to do when you receive your plants in the mail.

It is important to know that all of our plants are clearly labeled for which growing zones the plant can survive in. The plants are thoroughly trialed and tested in every growing zone before we state the plant can grow in a zone. Again, our #1 priority is to ship the plants to you healthy and ready to thrive in your location. So we will do everything in our power to do so.

    I work for a retirement home, and purchased these to go into the community garden. Almost every resident has commented on how pretty and unique the blooms are!

    These are some of the most pretty flowers I have ever seen. I wish I would have purchased a few more of these as gifts for my 2 kids, because they love how these look too!

    Plants took over a week to arrive, which I'm not happy about. They were in good condition. We will see if they survive though, after being in a box for more than a day.
