‘Autumn Ruby’ is a compact dwarf (2-2.5 ft) azalea of the Encore series.  The Encore series are all evergreen reblooming azaleas that keep their winter foliage and need 4-6 hours of sun to get the most out of their blooms.  The Autumn Encore azaleas are named in reference to their fall bloom.   ‘Autumn Ruby’ has an upright habit with small green leaves and a dense blooming of small scarlet red flowers in mid-spring and smaller blooms in summer and fall.  Evergreen azaleas are not very cold hardy; cold winters may freeze the flower buds and reduce bloom come spring, and leaves may experience winter burn.  A very versatile plant that prefers partial sun with acidic rich, well-drained soils.  Azaleas are excellent pollination and butterfly attractors.

MAINTENANCE NEEDS:  A low maintenance plant.  Moderate water needs, properly drained soils is a must to avoid root rot.  Mulch helps to keep roots from drying out. 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.
