Companion PlantsPlant close to your outdoor living area with Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Iris. In a more natural woodland setting, combine with the airy foliage of Astilbe, Heavenly Bamboo and Lily of the Valley. Early blooming deciduous trees like Cherry and Dogwood offer the needed filtered shade and ground hugging perennials such as Anemone, 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. Feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering.
