Design Ideas This low and wide spreader boasts hot pink flowers and is ideal for raised planters in city gardens. Allow its unique weeping form to create the background for a romantic garden setting, or use it as a front-of-the-border feature. Excellent up against the house to cover foundations and to tuck neatly beneath windows. For a colorful effect during the dull days of winter, mass several under very large tree canopies with filtered shade. Equally at home as a single specimen around water gardens and pools, where the pendulous branches may trail off boulders and falling petals may float upon the still water.
Flower Color Pink
Foliage Color Dark Green
Companion Plants Lily of the Valley (Pieris); Azalea (Azalea); Peony (Paeonia); Japanese Maple (Acer); Mountain Laurel (Kalmia)
CARE
Care Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune lightly to shape and feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering.
