Just as traditional in cottage and country gardens or as common color accents in Washington DC landscapes. Plant as a single specimen, in pairs at entries and gateways, in groves to compound their influence or in regularly spaced rows along driveways or street side.|
|Companion Plants||Boxwood (Buxus); Lilac (Syringa); Rose Of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus); Butterfly Bush (Buddleja); Coneflower (Echinacea)|
|Care||Provide humus-rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune for shape and structure after flowering.|
