Encore Azalea® is the only patented brand of azaleas to bloom in spring, summer, and fall. Today, the 23 varieties of Encore Azalea offer a growth habit and bloom color palette for every landscape. The evergreen shrubs enjoy more sun than traditional azaleas, but offer the same easy care.

Encore Azaleas begin blooming each spring like a traditional azalea. Once this initial blooming concludes, new shoots begin to grow and set buds. Then blooms emerge again in mid-summer and continue in many areas until first frost. No other azalea performs like that.
