Autumn Rouge Encore Azalea

Regular price $35.00 Sale

Rhododendron ‘Conlea’

The Autumn Rouge is the original Encore Azalea. 

Derived from the Southern Indica and Kurume, this encore hybrid is native to Louisiana. The encores' are the most sun tolerant of the azalea family. The Rouge Encore is part of the medium encore azalea class that is magnificent with semi-double, ruffled blooms twice a year. With frilly pink petals these beauties make excellent combination designs and work well independently as accents, foundations, or edge ornaments. 

The Rouge Encore is compact, known to attract butterflies, and very little pruning is required, deeming this plant a low maintenance variety.
