The Autumn Fire™ is gorgeous in looks, but simple in day to day maintenance. Unlike most azaleas, this plant can handle up to 4-6 hours of direct sun with some afternoon shade. It also can handle the cold with vigor, withstanding growing zones down to 6.
Like other azaleas, the Autumn Fire™ prefers an acidic organic composted soil with an optimal ph between 5.0 and 5.5. Water regularly, especially as the heat of summer sets in.
Feed with a well-balanced acidic fertilizer, so you can enjoy the blooms season after season. Pruning is minimal, with a simple cutting to maintain size right after the first bloom.
