    The Only Purple Azalea that Blooms Spring, Summer & Fall

    Do Encore® Azaleas really live up to the hype?

    It seems like Southern Living magazine and HGTV do a story on them every few months.

    Let me assure you, they are better.

    You can find a few, hard to grow Azaleas, that bloom a tad bit thicker at their peak than the Encores. But having up to 9 months of flowers can't be beat.

    The Autumn Royalty™ Encore was voted Azalea of the Year in 2004, by the American Rhododendron Society. In addition to the appearance and longevity of its blooms, they were impressed with how tough it is.

    It grows in sun or shade and tolerates temperature extremes. You have to love a plant that can thrive in Miami and New Jersey. It just proves that it'll do great, just about anywhere you put it.

    The height of Autumn Royalty™ makes it perfect for a low privacy hedge. It can be cast in many roles... adds color to an otherwise boring landscape, or makes a great year-round hedge.

    It doesn't need pruning and doesn't need fertilizer. (We fertilize ours anyway, because we get a kick out of seeing how heavy we can smother it with flowers.)

    We grow your Autumn Royalty™ Encore® Azaleas larger than most nurseries. This takes us up to a year longer, but it ensures that you get a well developed root system that takes off sooner. It also means that you can start enjoying colorful blooms right away, rather than tripping over a little stub of a plant.

    Our larger Azaleas do sell out, so we suggest that you go ahead and place your order while they're still available.

    For immediate blooms, plant well-developed 3 gallon Autumn Royalty Encore Azaleas. They've been grown up to a year longer than most plants, so they'll give you huge blankets of blooms they next growing season. Perfect for impatient gardeners!

    This one looked like it just came out of the ground and is still blooming!

    It's worth purchasing them online with Brighter Blooms.

    these were fully grown in their containers and needed to be planted or put in larger containers.

    I bought Autumn Royalty Azalea and planted it in full sun. It did not flower much this spring and summer. Fall time and it decides it is going to go full bloom!! I can't wait until next season to view this spectacular plant. I am not an experienced gardener, but this plant takes off on its own.

    Loving the 2 plants I got so far. I was surprised to find a flower this summer on the plant. I wasn't expecting it to bloom at all - and even though it was one, it was so neat to see.

    The Encore azaleas arrived in great shape. I planted them in October and they're still flowering in Nov! Gorgeous.

    Plant quality is tremendous. Just planted but I'm sure the flowers it will produce will be fantastic.

    The plants are nice but I thought I was getting bigger ones. They are only 5 gal. and at $45 I think they are over-priced.

    Very nice and healthy plants. They arrived quickly and were in bloom so I could see the color. I would have no hesitation in purchasing from Brighter Blooms Nursery again.
