Autumn Twist Encore Azalea
Rhododendron hybrid 'Conlep' PP12133

Perhaps the most unique of the Encore Azalea family, Autumn Twist produces an abundance of large, eye-catching white and purple striped blooms in spring, summer, and fall against dark green foliage. Some blooms may be all purple or all white which provides a multi-color effect. One of the most popular in the series. Looks great planted with Autumn Royalty Encore Azalea.

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.

Autumn Twist Encore Azalea - 3 Gallon
I could not find any Encore Azaleas for sale anywhere near where I live - so I went online and found this one for sale by Wilson Bros Gardens. Before ordering, I called them for more information about these bushes - and asked if it will survive in the climate where I live - Southwest Pennsylvania. I was told that since we have very cold winters, I will need to protect it during the winter months - at least for the first few years until it is well established. The Encore Azalea arrived at my house in absolutely perfect condition - unbelievable! I planted it as directed - and it looks gorgeous. Thank you so much!
