PLANTING GUIDE

Soil: Fertile, well-drained acidic soil with a pH around 5.5 to 6.2.
Light: Needs full to part sun.
Water: Has average water needs.
Spacing: 4 to 5 feet apart
Fertilizing: An all purpose garden fertilizer can be applied in spring. Check soil pH every few years to ensure that levels are correct for healthy growth, only then use soil acidifying products in your garden.
Winterizing: Planting in a protected area from harsh winter winds will help prevent winter damage. An application of mulch will help retain moisture during winter.
Maintenance & Pruning: Does not require pruning or deadheading. Prune only in spring after bloom, and just to shape plant or remove any dead growth.
