My Encore's are still blooming!

I love azaleas and got some Pink Encore Azaleas (3) They had an astonishing pink flush in Mid March-April and bloomed in late July and still are blooming today. Should I be worried I really want some blooms/growth next year. Do they bloom in fall? and if so do they set more buds? My dogwood tree already has its leaves dark red and so do all the other surronding trees.

RE: My Encore's are still blooming!

My lemon lights is blooming too (yellow flowers and red leaves - ugh), although it's supposed to bloom in spring. None of my other azaleas or rhodies are blooming. I'm blaming it on stress: I just bought the thing as a pathetic little orphan a few weeks ago, and it had a couple of blooms then (fragrant, so its "scheme" to attract a buyer worked ;) ). I'm hoping to have some blooms in spring, but not optimistic.
