Our Encore Azaleas produce consistent flowers year-round especially when planted in more sun. We have also found that they are significantly more resistant to lace bug when compared to other azaleas that we are growing. The Encore Azaleas are very hardy for Western Oregon, take low maintenance, and we give them high marks on overall performance

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!

We’ve specified Encore Azaleas for several years because of the prolific bloom and quality of plants. We recently specified Encore Azaleas for Emory Point in Atlanta; this project won a ULI Award of Excellence award and has been emulated by developers as the new gold standard for mixed-use developments. Encore Azaleas helped make Emory Point a winning project.

I have been growing the Encore Azaleas for over 15 years along with over 400 other azalea varieties. My Encore Azaleas have done as well as any azalea, but over the years have bloomed consistently in the fall. I am in a zone 6, and this past winter we had two days of negative 5 degrees with no snow cover, and most all of my Encore Azaleas have come back strong.

We did not lose any Encore azaleas this winter. The Encores add color to our gardens at a time when there is not much bloom, and our guests enjoy seeing them.

We had very unusual weather -- We had the hottest and coldest weather in state history over the past 6 years, and the Encore varieties generally faired well. Spring bloom following 5 to 6 years of very unseasonable weather has been surprisingly good, even those overwintered in containers.

We have been pleased with the performance of the Encore Azaleas in our garden, and we would recommend them for planting in San Francisco. We have had a second bloom in the fall, but the spring bloom is more prolific. Best of all, they enjoy full sun in Golden Gate Park -- which translates to full fog in the summer!

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.
