Autumn Moonlight Encore Azalea Shrubs for Sale Online
The beautifully ruffled blooms of Autumn Moonlight Encore Azalea Shrubs are pure white with yellow dusted throats. A robust, upright grower with light green foliage, this variety is great for background plantings. This shrub makes a great foundation plant because of its medium growth rate. This new variety possesses a unique blooming time and is superior in development. A site sloping to the north or east is usually best because it is less subjected to rapid temperature changes in late fall or early spring; needs wind protection.
Filtered sunlight is ideal, but morning sunlight is best; plants may survive continuous shade if trees have branches pruned high. Other protection from the afternoon sun may be fences, shrubbery, or screens. Roots of azaleas and rhododendrons are very delicate and unable to penetrate heavy or rocky soils; excellent drainage is crucial. After flowering, new shoots appear and develop more flower buds into the fall and sometimes up to the first frost.
