Design Ideas Excellent choice for cool, shade to semi-shade settings as a colorful low hedge, espalier, or groundcover due to its short, pendulous habit. A great addition to an Asian inspired garden or in mass at the front fringe of a woodland setting. Ideal for filling a tree understory, where its glossy leaves and cool season color will add interest. This is a well-behaved shrub for planting between taller structures or along a fence line, allowed to spill over a raised planter, or from hanging baskets or pots, where its branches will gently soften the edges.
Flower Color Pink
Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum); Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Magnolia (Magnolia); Cedar (Cedrus)
CARE
Care 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.
