"Autumn Sweetheart" Encore Azalea is yet another gorgeous everblooming shrub that produces large orchid-pink blossoms from spring until summer! These large double-blossoms are highly fragrant, attracting hummingbirds and butterflies from miles around. The unique shade of orchid-pink that colors these flowers is beautifully complemented by gently climbing lavender freckles adorning the heart of the blossoms. Their lightly ruffled texture further adds to the elegance and natural beauty of these blossoms. Once established, this Azalea cultivar is quite low-maintenance beyond the occasional summer watering and doesn't even require annual pruning since it's naturally compact. The pink flowers brighten up a lawn spring through summer, but a lesser known quality is that this shrub produces evergreen foliage! Even in the dead of winter, the green leaves will bring color and vibrance to a lawn lacking in plant life.
"Autumn Sweetheart" Encore Azalea is ideal for small gardens and urban plantings near sidewalks since it's even more compact than most Azaleas, reaching a height between two and three feet, with an equal spread of also two to three feet. Another great feature of all Azaleas in general is that they can be kept even smaller if desired with regular pruning!
If you're looking for multi-seasonal bright colors and soft elegance in your landscape, then look no further than the "Autumn Sweetheart" Encore Azalea. Their ruffled orchid-pink and lavender-freckled petals will bring joy and life to a landscape all season long!
