|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 3 to 4 ft. tall, spreading wider.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Hedge, Ground Cover|
|Design Ideas||The bright yellow-green of the foliage makes this a stand-out shrub for the mixed border, and outstanding fall color makes it a real eye-catcher. Plant singly or in a group in the sunny border or at the corner of a walkway where it will easily be seen.|
|Companion Plants||Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Weigela (Weigela); Coneflower (Echinacea); Spruce (Picea); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Prefers average, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established maintain evenly moist soil. Feed in early spring. Remove spent blooms to promote continued flowering. Blooms on new wood; prune before new growth begins, as needed to shape and to thin stems.|
