Autumn Fire Encore Azaleas
I bought 12 azaleas in early May. They were shipped in excellent condition. They are thriving, can't wait for them to bloom again. I highly recommend them to others. I live in N.C. and they are setting in the hot west sun.

Beautiful plant with amazing color
I am a return buyer for this azalea. I bought two of the Autumn Fire Encore Azalea back in Sept, 2021 and was so impressed with the quality of the plants, I purchased 3 more of the 1 gallon plants in March, 2022. The plants arrived well packaged and so healthy. I used BioTone in the planting hole and they are flowering with with healthy new growth in just 2 weeks. If I need any other plants for my yard, I will definitely look to purchase from Home Depot. Great quality and price!

          Delivered in great shape
          I ordered 7 autum fire oncore azaleas . In zone 6, Michigan. They came in boxes with air vents and plastic wrapped around the pot to hold in water. They look great, was surprised at how well they look. They look the correct size for a two gallon pot. None of the stores by me sold this so had to buy them online. We will have to see how well they bloom in zone 6.

            We couldn't be happier! We were concerned about buying plants online and having them shipped, but kudos to the packaging engineers and the folks at the greenhouse! The shipping boxes kept the plants safe even if a box was turned upside down or on its side (ours arrived upright). The root container was wrapped in plastic that not only prevented spillage, but also kept the roots moist. We purchased 20 of these little guys to replace drift roses that died of rose rosette disease. Our new azaleas have been in the ground for only a few weeks, but all of them are doing quite well. We're already seeing new blooms, and we're looking forward to an abundance of color once they become fully established.

            The plants arrived 3 days after I ordered them, with the pots wrapped in plastic keeping the roots/soil moist. Plants were healthy and looked good. There weren't any dead leaves or branches. Plants were a little smaller than I thought for a 3 gallon container, but overall a very good experience. I'd buy them again.
