Care Information

Prefers moist, enriched, well-drained, acidic soil. Shelter from harsh winter exposure in northern climates. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; supplement during hot, dry spells. Blooms on new wood, so prune as needed (e.g., remove stems lost to winter and, if desired, thin to the ground up to 1/3 of old stems) in late winter to early spring.

  • Light: Full sun to partial sun
  • Water: Average
  • Fertilizer: Apply before new growth appears in spring
  • Height: 3-5 feet
  • Spacing: 5-6 feet
