LOXLEY, USA: Two new Encore® Azaleas join the world’s most popular family of reblooming azaleas. Autumn Majesty® and Autumn Starburst™ combine the high performance you’ve come to expect from Encore® with exceptional new flower colours.
The striking bicolor blossoms of Autumn Starburst™ feature a star-shaped coral-pink center edged in pure white. The bold blooms shine against attractive, dark green foliage.
Autumn Majesty® produces masses of petite, purple blooms throughout the season. The semi-double flowers are packed with layers of petals for a ruffled appearance. Clean foliage stays bright green all year long.
Developed by Robert “Buddy” Lee, inventor of Encore® Azaleas, both varieties were selected for their compact form, attractive foliage, and cold hardiness. Reaching only 3′ tall by 3′ wide, these dwarf varieties take up less space in production and require little to no pruning.
Autumn Majesty® and Autumn Starburst™ are among the more cold-hardy Encore® Azaleas, thriving in USDA Zone 6A and above. Like all Encore® Azaleas, they flower profusely in spring, with repeat blooming throughout the summer and fall.
