Autumn Carnation Encore Azalea produces an abundance of large, gorgeous vibrant pink double blooms in spring, summer, and fall that nearly cover the lustrous, dark green foliage. The ruffled flowers are very similar in appearance to the old 'Pink Ruffle' azalea. University trials have shown Autumn Carnation to be one of the most cold tolerant Encore Azalea varieties in the series. Butterflies love the flowers, and blooming branches are nice for cutting to create stunning indoor floral arrangements.
