Azalea Evergreen Encore ‘Autumn Lilac’
Encore® Azaleas have been in the marketplace for over 23 years and are well known to be cold-hardy, low-maintenance, reblooming and to add vivid multi seasonal color to the landscape.
Autumn Lilac’s brilliant lavender blooms are accented with darker purple freckles and stand out against its evergreen foliage. Autumn Lilac was bred for its cold hardy tendencies and selected for its rounded growth habit.
Encore Azaleas will need a bit more protection from freezing temperatures in the Cleveland area, so it is recommended that they be mulched well for the winter months (4 inches) . Also, be sure that your Encore Azaleas receive at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.
