Autumn Belle Encore Azalea
Rhododendron hybrid 'Robleo' PP19899

One of the most beautiful of the Encore Azaleas, Autumn Belle produces an abundance of soft-pink double blooms embellished by delicate white lacing and magenta freckles in spring, summer, and fall. 

Encore Azaleas perform best in an acidic, well-drained soil rich in organic matter and full sun to part shade. As with so many other ornamental plants, constantly soggy soil can cause root rot and other plant diseases. For best flowering, we recommend 5 hours or more of direct sun per day.
