Azaleas are one of the best foundation plants! They are evergreen and bust out in spring blooms - what's not to love? But Encore has improved on the beloved landscape Azalea by developing a new tree form that elevates that beauty and function to eye level. Introducing Autumn Lily by Encore Azaleas (Rhododendron 'Roblex' PP25073)!
The evergreen foliage of Autumn Lily is a deep lustrous green that will stay green all winter. In the spring these perfectly shaped plants are covered in pristine white blooms that have an occasional purple stripe that looks great against the bright green spring leaves.
This is one of the most cold-hardy of the Encore Azaleas, handling harsh winters in its growing zones without coddling. The pure white adds drama and depth to the shade garden and pairs with absolutely any other color. Try it mixed in with other Encore Azaleas in pink or lavender. For a real head turning display, pair it with bright red Autumn Fire. It looks great with other shade lovers like Hostas and Heucheras or pair it with grassy bi-color Everest Carex for a modern look.
Autumn Lily looks great in large tubs beside a doorway, as a beautiful specimen tree or planted in a row along a walkway.
