Product Overview

Rhododendron 'Autumn Chiffon'
Clustered blooms that are light pink with a deep pink blotch cover this azalea in mid-spring with additional, lighter flushes in summer and fall; deep green glossy foliage emerges light green; needs highly acidic and organic soil that is well drained

Encore® Autumn Chiffon Azalea is an open multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Encore Autumn Chiffon Azalea is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use

Features

Encore® Autumn Chiffon Azalea is covered in stunning clusters of white trumpet-shaped flowers with shell pink overtones and hot pink spots at the ends of the branches from mid spring to early fall. It has dark green foliage which emerges light green in spring. The glossy narrow leaves remain dark green throughout the winter. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

 

Planting & Growing

Encore® Autumn Chiffon™ Azalea will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to be a little leggy, with a typical clearance of 1 foot from the ground. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It requires an evenly moist well-drained soil for optimal growth, but will die in standing water. It is very fussy about its soil conditions and must have rich, acidic soils to ensure success, and is subject to chlorosis (yellowing) of the leaves in alkaline soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.

    I bought one recently to replace a plant that got flooded. Autumn Chiffon blooms well, even in the shade where they are planted in my yard. They have maintained their compact form even after many years.
