Companion Plants Rose (Rosa); Catmint (Nepeta); Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Barberry (Berberis); Russian Sage (Perovskia)
CARE
Care Highly adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune annually to shape.
