Autumn Jewel provides landscape color year-round with its pink blooms in spring, summer, and fall, and its attractive purple winter foliage. Autumn Jewel is one of the most cold-hardy Encore Azaleas.
Encore Azaleas prefer a an acid soil that contains plenty of organic matter and is well-drained. Encores will tolerate all-day full sun however will also tolerate some shade. Too much shade and flowering will be diminished. 5 hours or more of direct sun per day is recommended. A light pruning and feeding after the first bloom phase can help stimulate new growth and encourage heavier bud development. A better garden starts with a better plant.
