    Care Information
    Thrives in rich, well-drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule the first growing season to develop a deep, extensive root system. Tolerates dry shade but best with regular water during hot dry spells. Clip spent flower stems in late summer. Prune old foliage in early spring to rejuvenate.

  • History & Lore
    History:
    When Dan Hinkley collected the seeds for Beesia deltophylla in China in the 1960s he was immediately intriuged by the species, but frustrated by the virtual absence in any reference book. This particular selection was collected in 1998 in Sichuan Province.
