Autumn Embers Encore Azalea
Rhododendron hybrid 'Conleb' PP10581

One of the most popular of the Encore Azaleas, Autumn Embers produces an abundance of large, eye-catching, deep orange-red double flowers in spring and fall and sporadically during summer. 

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.

Great online nursery
Encore azaleas simply are the best most healthy azaleas on the market. If they get enough sun they will bloom at least three times each season. The colors are simply outstanding. Wilson Brothers is without a doubt the best online nursery on the market. Shipment is fast and plants are all outstanding and healthy. I have several local nurseries in my area but Wilson Brothers always sends me far superior plants. ----------------- WBG RESPONSE: Hi Robert - Thanks so much for your compliments! It makes everything we do even more worth the while. I have all 30 varieties of Encore Azaleas growing in my landscape and have yet to lose a single one over the years. That' said, I've been growing azaleas for decades and have learned the basics for easy success, which folks can find under the Planting and Care tabs on this or any other azalea page in our website. Have you tried the new Autumn Fire Encore Azalea? The flower color is indescribable, and it produces LOADS of blooms even at a young age. Thanks again and let us know if there's ever anything else we can help you with. We're at your service. Plant long and prosper! - Brent Wilson | Wilson Bros Gardens

Beautiful azaleas
I ordered 5 of the encore Azalea's. Colors were Red/Purple/White. They came well packaged and the company was easy to deal with. I still have blooms on the red ones and it's November 7. I will definitely buy more of these.
