CARE
Care Thrives in humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Best in bright or dappled shade; protect from harsh direct sun and drying winds. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established maintain evenly moist soil. Feed with a slow-release fertilizer in spring.
HISTORY
Lore All species of Helwingia are dioecious, meaning if both male and female plants are grown in proximity to each other, small purple drupes (fruit) may be produced, and ripen atop the leaf blades in early autumn.
