|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.|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
