Use this dwarf shrub around the edges of tree canopies, among acid-loving woodland plants, or as a foundation plant along building walls and fences. Makes a great color contribution to wild gardens, particularly those in climates where summers are moderately cool. Also makes a lovely potted specimen for decks, patios and porches.|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.|
