Questions & Answers

Do they grow well in Florida? And in pots or in the ground is better ?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Adryhope
The Encore Azalea Autumn Empress do grow very well in FL, and can be planted in pots or in the ground for beautiful results. With either planting make sure to use a well drained garden soil, water frequently until established in the new environment, and use a slow release granular slightly acidic fertilizer every spring.

We planted five of the Autumn Empress azaleas against the edge our back patio several years ago and have been enormously pleased with the gorgeous color and tri-seasonal blooms we've had ever since. The Encore azalea far surpasses our other typical azaleas, which are pretty but only bloom for a brief amount of time in Spring. Not these! In autumn with chilly weather and leaves falling from the trees, these Encore azaleas are still blooming! They have significantly increased in price in recent years, but are well worth it for their easy care and the enjoyment they add.
