  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide acidic, well-drained soil. In extremely hot, arid summer areas, shelter from harsh, reflected afternoon sun. Feed in early spring with an acid fertilizer (Rhododendron & Azalea blends are perfect). Recommended winter chill: 1,000 hours. Annual pruning to remove dead or non-fruiting wood promotes growth and berry production.
    Light Needs:
    <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).
