Fiery spring display, the Encore® Autumn Embers® Azalea (Rhododendron 'Conleb' PP10581) is the preeminent plant for Azalea lovers! Semi-double, scarlet blooms of orange-red intensity arrive in spring, much to the delight of all your early arriving Hummingbirds and early emerging pollinators! Then Autumn Embers® keeps them coming back with an "Encore" of blossoms in autumn!
The dark-green foliage is an elegant accent for the ornate flowers, and its beauty is matched only by its low-maintenance nature. Naturally staying round, this broad-leaved evergreen Azalea is very easy-to-grow! Growing a tidy 2-3 feet in height but spreading 3-4 feet wide, this showy four-season ornamental shrub won't let you down when it comes to reliability and color!
Tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, Autumn Embers® even attracts wildlife and pollinators with its brilliant blooms throughout USDA growing zones 6 to 9! Faster growing and very low maintenance, you won't go wrong with Azaleas from the Encore® Azalea series!
Those dark-green leaves will stick around all year and continue to brighten your landscape with green against the winter bleakness. The year-round foliage creates wide spreading cover over larger areas of ground while staying low-growing and won't block your view! Add a low border or edging before leggier foundation shrubs and evergreen hedges as facer plants. They, of course, look great mixed with other Encore® Azaleas! Plant a few as a short hedge along a side building, or just one in your front yard for four-season color that can't be beat!
A single spring specimen lights up the landscape or brightens a tired mixed-shrub border. The deep-red blooms will light up your container or entry when contrasted against the foliage. Or use these low-growing evergreens as erosion control and beautify that hard-to-mow hillside or boring slope! Large planters and retaining walls both gain a vivid spiller and thriller!
Handling full sun and partial shade, afternoon shade especially in the hottest of its favored growing zones, Azaleas love a highly-organic, well-drained, and moist environment to grow in. Their shallow root systems appreciate light mulching over the soil surface but despise soggy conditions. Encore® Azaleas are is heat, disease, and drought tolerant so they'll certainly be a tough little shrub that you won't have to fuss over. Only prune flowering broad-leaved evergreen shrubs immediately after the flowers fade to avoid removing next year's spring display!

Azaleas and Rhododendrons prefer partial shade (both dappled shade all day or morning sun with afternoon shade). Plant in a slightly acidic, consistently moist, enriched and well-drained soil location for best results. Their shallow roots dislike soggy soil but thrive with a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch over their surface.
Encore® Autumn Embers® Azalea can reach 2-3 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide in optimal conditions.
Azalea and Rhododendron shrubs are very easy to grow and low-maintenance. Water during drought, prune only after flowering and fertilize with an acid-loving organic, slow-release flowering plant fertilizer.
All Azaleas are Rhododendrons but not all Rhodondendrons are Azaleas. Azalea tends to be smaller-sized with smaller leaves and stems, while Rhododendrons can be larger with stout branching and larger bloom trusses. There can both be either deciduous or broad-leaved evergreens.
