|Companion Plants||Pair this multi-colored bloomer with the big blooming, solid colors of Gardenia, Hydrangea, and Azalea.

Early blooming deciduous trees like Cherry and Dogwood offer the needed filtered shade and ground hugging perennials such as Fumewort, Coral Bells, and Clematis offer interest and color throughout all layers of the garden.|
Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune lightly to shape and feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering.
