    Care Information
    Provide average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. As a ground cover, space plants 2 to 3 ft. apart; control weeds until plants fill in. For vertical effect, provide trellis or arbor support. Trim periodically to promote new growth with more pronounced coloration.
