Autumn Moonlight™ Encore® Azalea
Vibrant Double-Blooms for Three Seasons
What's so special about Encore Azaleas? They bloom throughout the entire growing season.
Traditional azaleas bloom only in springtime, but Encore Azaleas grow a second set of flower buds that bloom from mid-summer until late fall. Now you can enjoy azalea flowers for three seasons instead of just one.
Autumn Moonlight is a tall, sturdy shrub with pure white flowers that have a dusting of yellow at the throat. Its upright growth habit makes it perfect for the back of the border, or as a spectacular hedge.
Encores are the only azaleas that bloom in spring, summer and fall. They are easy to care for, and rarely require pruning. If you want to shape your Encore Azaleas, do so right after the spring flowers finish. This way you won't cut off the new flower buds that make Encore Azaleas so special.
The white, ruffled flowers of Autumn Moonlight are huge, semi-double blossoms. When used as a background in a traditional flower bed, the white flowers will cause all the other flower colors to pop.
Butterflies are particularly attracted to the Autumn Moonlight. They love to drink from the yellow throats of the large white flowers.
Each of the twenty-four varieties of Encore Azalea is evergreen, and likes more sun than traditional azaleas. Their easy-care nature and three-season blooming period make Encore Azaleas ideal in an array of gardening situations.
Use Autumn Moonlight where the landscape needs a little pick-me-up. The light green leaves and bright white flowers can enliven a dreary corner, or disguise an unsightly view. You'll love the beauty of Autumn Moonlight growing in the sunlight, and glowing in the moonlight.
