Autumn Twist Encore Azalea Tree

Out of stock

Fast-Growing Tree with Purple Blooms

What could be more inspiring for your home than the sight of a tree that bursts into bloom in spring and remains blanketed with purple flowers well into fall?  Your Autumn Twist Azalea Tree could be that breathtaking sight in your yard this year!  Autumn Twist’s 3-inch, single blooms appear early in the season, their trumpet-shaped, purple brilliance heralding the arrival of spring like no other.

Each cluster of lovely blossoms appears at the end of your Autumn Twist’s branches, clothed in a deep purple hue, highlighted with streaks of pink/white.  The occasional solid purple blossom will appear for good measure, adding an additional dash of color.  Dark green foliage completes the picture, the perfect backdrop for the artistry of the gorgeous flowers. 

Autumn Twist is a broadleaf evergreen that will grow up to 4-7 feet tall, with a rounded canopy.  It’s adaptable to a variety of soils and is drought and disease tolerant.  Its fast-growing nature adds to its allure as does its attraction for butterflies and other pollinators. This tree form of the popular shrub would look terrific planted in a decorative pot on your front porch.  It would also provide an outstanding focal point in your perennial bed.

The Encore series is outstanding, and this Encore Autumn Twist Azalea is certainly a spectacular shrub in its shrub form…but in this “tree form”, the results are nothing short of spectacular!  Put an end to merely imagining one in your yard, and make it a reality today!
