Azalea - Encore® Autumn Coral™
The Azalea Encore 'Autumn Coral', Rhododendron Hybrid 'Conled', is an evergreen azalea that is an extremely heavy bloomer throughout the summer and fall.
This azalea has a single form that has soft coral pink flowers, dotted with bright fuchsia centers, and blooms profusely throughout the summer and fall months.
Having a medium growth rate, this repeat bloomer makes a great foundation plant. This new variety possesses a unique blooming time and is superior in development of a dense plant with attractive single pink flowers.
A site sloping to the north or east is usually best because it is less subjected to rapid temperature changes in late fall or early spring; needs wind protection.
Filtered sunlight is ideal, but morning sunlight is best; plant may survive continuous shade if trees have branches pruned high. Protection from afternoon sun may also be given by fences, shrubbery or screens.
Roots of azaleas and rhododendrons are very delicate and unable to penetrate heavy or rocky soils; excellent drainage is important.
