As the oldest garden in America and the first garden in the nation that planted azaleas outside, the Encore Azalea fits perfectly within the mission and legacy of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. We take pride in presenting a garden that displays color throughout the year. As such the Encore Azalea allows us to offer colorful and hardy azaleas late into the bloom season with the largest collection of Encore Azaleas in the United States. I am pleased Magnolia can present to our visitors this additional beauty.

I started recommending Encores after the first rough winter in this area. They came through with great success. Encores are among my best selling shrubs, and the color selections leave something for everyone. The assorted growing patterns also fit any landscape. This makes them even easier to sell to the toughest customers. We are proud to carry these plants, and will continue to recommend them for a long time to come. Always excited by next new release, keep them coming.

The one variety that stands head and shoulders above the rest is Encore Azalea Autumn Lilac™. Although it was bred primarily for cold hardiness, Autumn Lilac thrives in the heat and humidity of Florida. The lilac flowers with darker freckles bloom continuously September –January on rounded shrubs to 24” tall. In five years we have never pruned it, and the dark, emerald green foliage looks great year ‘round.

I’ve been lucky enough to follow and work with the entire evolution of the Encore Azalea Series. What more could you ask for? You can pick a plant that grows the height you need, the color you want and it blooms for months on end. Dang near perfect. Just give it the sun and drainage it needs and it does the rest. Outstanding and dependable!

Encore Azaleas is one of my favorite shrubs in landscape design. I love that it is hardy, low maintenance and above all, you can have a multitude of colors to choose from. My clients love them too. You won’t be disappointed.

We've been recommending Encore Azaleas to our clients for several years now. The Encore Azaleas have consistently been one of the best performers. The multiple different blooms throughout the year is a huge selling point and really makes azaleas a lot more appealing than they've been in the past. We are always amazed at how established and healthy the plants are when they arrive and our customers frequently tell us they look even better than they expected.

I live in Bonita California, San Diego County. The Marine Core Recruit Depot (MCRD) introduced Encore Azaleas to us several years ago. Our azaleas are in ground and in large pots . They bloom about every 2-21/2 months. We nurture with organic, from EB Stone soil on. Encore should not forget San Diego County's many diverse micro climates. I bring Virginia to my landscape with AZALEAS.

Have grown Encore Azaleas for last two years and they survived a miserable winter. Right now they are in bloom. Everyone is amazed at this plant. Love it!
