AZALEA ENCORE EMBERS - Rhododendron Hybrid 'Conleb'

The Azalea Encore 'Autumn Embers', Rhododendron Hybrid 'Conleb', has deep orange-red semi double blooms, and 'Autumn Embers' is one of the most popular of the Encore Series collection. It is a repeat bloomer that has medium growth with a mature height of 3 feet and a spread of 4 feet, and the blooms make a colorful statement in any landscape! The roots of azaleas and rhododendrons are very delicate and unable to penetrate heavy or rocky soils so amending the soil and excellent drainage is important. Each of the many Encore varieties begins their performance with the spring flowering season. Once this "first act" of blooming concludes, new shoots begin to grow and set buds. The Encore Azalea's "second act" opens when these buds begin blooming into full flower during summer. This unique bloom season continues through the fall, the curtain dropping with the onset of cold weather.


Encore Azaleas

Finally there is more to an Azalea than just a couple weeks of incredible blooms and only evergreen color to redeem the rest of the year. Now there are reblooming azaleas that provide weeks of colorful flowers throughout the year in repeated flush of blooms.  Plant your Encore Azaleas in a part sun area where they will receive at least 4-6 hours of morning sunlight this will help protected them from heat stress or drought conditions.
