    Care Information
    Prefers moist, well-drained, amended soils. In non-acidic soils, blue bloom color can be maintained with the addition of aluminum sulfate to the soil several times per year, beginning in fall and repeating before leaves emerge in spring and before buds set. Blooms on new and old wood; prune after flowering. Protect in winter in northern zones. Fertilize in spring.

    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
