Reason to Plant Encores

This is the reason you plant Encore azaleas. This is my Autumn Twist in full bloom in November. You can't help but love getting azaleas at this time of year. This one will only get better as it gets older. One thing to remember about Encores is that they like a little more sun than normal azaleas. This one is on the East side of my house and gets full morning sun and isn't shaded until mid-afternoon when the sun is at its hottest. This is about perfect for my plant. Keep it watered and mulched and let it go.

I'm wondering if my azalea is an encore since it is blooming. Here on the coast I've not seen azaleas bloom this time of year.
