Azalea Encore Autumn Amethyst

 

Dark lavender-fuchsia blooms top this variety off and on almost all year. Deep, evergreen foliage turns burgundy in cooler, winter months. Trials have shown this variety to be one of the cold hardiest of the Encore Azalea line. Grows 4 feet high and wide. Prefers full to part sun and well draining, acidic soil types. Attracts butterflies.
