Product Description

A Fiery 2015 Addition to Azaleas!

Get ready for the newest azalea on the block. Brighter Blooms Nursery is proud to present the Autumn Fire™ , which was just released in 2015!

This true red dwarf Azalea is a must-have addition to your spring garden plans…

• Low maintenance
• Blooms in multiple seasons
• Cold-hardy
• Tougher than traditional azaleas

World-renowned azalea breeder, Robert Lee, has done it again! His newest creation, the Autumn Fire™ Azalea promises to be the best bloomer yet. Lee began the Encore® Azaleas project in the 1980s, with an emphasis on creating fall-blooming traits as well as being a winter hardy evergreen. Unlike the two-week spring blooms of traditional azaleas, Lee created 28 breeds that bloom over and over again.

The Autumn Fire™ is number 29, and it promises to be the biggest showstopper of the bunch. Cherry red 3-inch blooms sit majestically amidst green foliage. Best of all, the Autumn Fire™ will dazzle not only in the spring but well into autumn. Be the first grower on the block to own this unique and showy azalea!

Easier Than Traditional Azaleas

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.

A Centerpiece in Any Design

Wherever you decide to put your brand new Autumn Fire™, rest assured it will heighten the look of any landscape. Its compact size (3 feet max) allows this azalea to sit pretty in perennial beds, natural paths, and even in a container on the patio. No wonder the Encore® Azaleas are the best selling azaleas in the world!

Get your Autumn Fire™ today... it will reward your landscape with fiery red blooms for years to come.
