Azalea, Autumn Sunset Encore


Description: Autumn Sunset gives you vivid orange-red blooms, a color similar to that of a spectacular fall sunset. Deep green foliage and sizzling auburn flowers combine to create eye-popping splendor. Flowering as early as March, your Autumn Sunset gets a jump start on many garden bloomers. Then, just when other blossoms are withering, your azalea is ready to go again, developing new shoots and growing buds which will add color through the summer.
