    Care Information
    Provide average, evenly moist, well drained garden loam. Tolerates light shade in hot summer climates. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a slow-release, general purpose fertilizer in spring; repeat after first bloom flush. Provide support such as a trellis or arbor. Pruning is not necessary except to maintain desired size.Pruning time: prune after flowering.
    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).
