About This Product

A fast-growing dwarf azalea, the new Autumn Bonfire Encore Azalea glows with numerous, true red, semi-double, and single blooms in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Autumn Bonfire holds its bright green foliage year-round and grows to an average of 3 ft. high by 3.5 ft. wide. Now, you can enjoy 34 varieties of Encore Azaleas that boast profuse, repeat blooms; bold color, and year-round interest. These Azaleas require little maintenance once established and have superb disease resistance. They are also great attractants to pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds.

These leaves are oval-shaped with a glossy green appearance, providing an attractive backdrop to the vibrant blooms of this azalea variety.

    Q:How many times a year does this Azalea bloom
    by|Feb 8, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The Encore Azalea Autumn Bonfire typically blooms multiple times a year, often showcasing its vibrant flowers in spring, summer, and fall. To maximize its blooming potential, ensure the plant receives adequate sunlight, ideally partial shade in hotter climates, and well-drained, acidic soil. Regular watering, especially during dry periods, is essential for promoting healthy growth and abundant blooms. Applying a slow-release fertilizer formulated for acid-loving plants in spring and summer can provide the necessary nutrients for continuous flowering. Additionally, deadheading spent blooms and light pruning after the spring bloom cycle can encourage further flowering throughout the growing season.

        Q:Direct sun
        by|Aug 9, 2023
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Short answer, you can. But must be well cared for w/proper watering and feeding. A good irrigation system is a must. Do not put water on the plant. I know it rains, but it dosen't have Chlorine. You will do best with chopped up pine needles around the base but not touching trunk of plant. Cover with pine bark mulch. Do not pack the soil as you would for Roses. Best performance of this Azalea would be early & mid day sun. That's the ideal environment.

        by|Aug 9, 2023

          A:  The Encore Azalea Autumn Bonfire is well-suited for planting in locations with direct sun, but it also tolerates some partial shade. In general, these azaleas thrive in areas with full sun to partial shade, receiving at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. However, it's essential to ensure that the soil is well-drained and consistently moist to help the shrub establish a healthy root system. Providing adequate mulch around the base of the plant can help retain moisture and protect the roots. While the Autumn Bonfire can handle direct sun, it's important to monitor the moisture levels and provide some relief from intense afternoon sun in extremely hot climates to prevent stress or scorching. If you are in the warmer zones 8 to 10 start scaling back how much direct sun you expose this plant to and in zones 6 to 7 you can increase the direct sun exposure

              I ordered this in July with temps in the mid to upper 90s. Arrived in perfect condition and bloomed a week later. Absolutely amazed! It's super beautiful, healthy and not tiny like you usually get from those mail order places.

              The azalea was infected with live snails. The leaves were full of holes. I found 2 cutworms on the rootball. Too bad, original plant might have been healthy.

                I ordered three of the 1-gallon shrubs for my front lawn and one is significantly smaller than the other, small enough that I am going to return it in hopes for getting it replaced.

                This will not survive zone 6 weather even though that is what they claim. I bought 20 of these in 2018 and they are either dead or look bad. And none of them bloomed flowers this year.
