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 Starburst Encore is part of the large encore azalea class that is the star of the show with single blooms twice a year. Autumn Starburst features coral pink blooms with large white ruffled edges, single to semi-double form blooms that measure 2.5 inches across.
