‘Autumn Fire’ is a compact dwarf evergreen azalea shrub with small dark green leaves that gain a bronze-purple hue in winter.  Dense clusters of velvety semi-double deep red flowers bloom in mid-spring and reblooms into fall.  A very versatile plant that prefers partial sun with acidic rich, well-drained soils.  Azaleas are excellent pollination and butterfly attractors.

Keep away from drip lines of the walnut family. Acidify soils as needed (PH range of 5 to 6.5) Can use sulfur or iron sulfate to lower ph, and lime or limestone to raise PH. Southern climates with excessive humidity are more prone to powdery mildew, twig blights, and rust.
