Q:What is the difference between the 2 gallon and the 3 gallon lilac encore azalea?
by|Apr 5, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The main difference between the 2-gallon and 3-gallon Lilac Encore Azaleas lies in their size and maturity at the time of purchase. A 3-gallon plant is typically more established and larger than a 2-gallon plant, with more foliage, branches, and potentially more blooms. As a result, the 3-gallon size may provide more immediate impact in the landscape, while the 2-gallon size may require some additional time to grow and establish. Both sizes can thrive with proper care and attention, and the choice between them depends on your preference, budget, and desired effect in your garden.

        Q:Can this plant grow in Phoenix, Arizona??
        by|Dec 3, 2016

        Answer This Question

        A:  The Encore Azalea Lilac is rated for USDA zones 6-9, and you live in usda zone 10. You should be ok planting this plant in your area, but make sure to lean towards more shade so this plant does not cook in the AZ sun. Also Encore Azaleas like Acidic soils and large portions of the the US southwest tend to be alkaline, so make sure to do a soil PH and amend the soil before planting if necessary.

        by|May 4, 2023

          A:  check with https://www.encoreazalea.com/resources/find-your-zone/ they will give you a list of all their azaleas for your area

          by|Aug 5, 2020

            A:  Absolutely NOT! Your soil PH is way too high in your desert environment (true of most locations in the Southwest). Azaleas grow in relatively high acidic soils (PH values 5.5 - 6.0) and will die quickly in PH values above 7.5.
