Bi-Color Flowers and Year-Round Appeal

Autumn Twist Encore Azalea, Azalea x 'Conlep', (from the Encore series), is an ornamental shrub with delightful, bi-color blooms. Plant a few as a short hedge along a side building, or just one in your front yard for 3-season color that can't be beat.

Your Autumn Twist Encore Azalea features white/pink-shaded petals with purple striping. Each lovely blossom is about 3-inches across with variation that spans from white to pink, pinkish-purple, and purple. The blooms begin in spring and continue on through summer and even into fall for an exceptionally long season of re-blooming color.

The dark green foliage provides an elegant backdrop for the vibrant color of the flowers, and will maintain an evergreen presence in your yard through the cold winter months. It has an upright growth rate with a rounded form. Autumn Twist Encore Azalea is fast-growing, so you won't have to wait long to see its spectacular results.

Autumn Twist is heat, disease and drought tolerant so it'll certainly be a tough little shrub that you won't have to fuss over.

As Azaleas go, it's hard to beat the Encore series, and Autumn Twist Encore Azalea is one of the best. Hardy and evergreen with a re-blooming display of bi-color flowers, Autumn Twist is sure to enliven your landscape not just in autumn, but all year round.
