Repeat-Blooming, Purple Azalea

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea, Azalea x 'Conlec', is known for its repeating blooms and sun tolerance. These would make an excellent, low-growing hedge along your property line or plant one in a side yard for some added color, spring through fall.

Imagine a blanket of funnel-shaped, 4-inch blooms covering your Azalea shrub in pink-hued, purple splendor each and every spring. Now consider that this Azalea doesn't just put on that show once a year (as most Azaleas do), but continues it right into fall. That's your Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea!

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea will burst into floral perfection in spring, and provide you with an "encore" of that performance until winter rears its chilly head. Even when the show is over, your Autumn Royalty will continue to provide a lively presence in your yard with its 6-inch oval, evergreen foliage.

It has an upright habit with a compact nature. Autumn Royalty grows naturally beautiful, but will accept some pruning if you so desire.

It not only provides an abundance of blooms, but does so with little or no care from you. You can just plant it and sit back to watch the show!

Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea won "Rhododendron of the Year" by the Rhododendron Society of America and once you plant one you'll understand why!

  • Repeat Blooming Purple Flowers
  • Fast Growing Evergreen
  • Sun, Heat & Cold Tolerant
  • Deer And Rabbit Resistant
