Flower Color Pink
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Keep the scale small by mixing with a selection of dwarf, acid-loving shrubs, such as the white-flowering Prelude Pieris (Pieris taiwanensis 'Prelude') and Compact Oregon Grape Holly (Mahonia aquifolium 'Compacta'), with its deep-green foliage that turns to purplish-red in winter.
CARE
Care 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.
HISTORY
