Care & Shipping Notes

Plant in average to moist, well drained soil. Prefers soil that is organically rich. Will tolerate clay and sandy soil as well as a variety of other soil conditions. Water regularly, especially in hot, dry weather.   No serious insect or disease problems. Susceptible to leaf and twig blights. Trim after spring flowering and thin out old dead canes.  Shape until July 4 so bloom buds for next year’s flowering are not lost.  Removing 20-25% of the old stems will allow better growth of new stems which have the brightest coloring.  Fertilize in the fall with Tree & Shrub Fertilizer.  Watch closely for canker in high heat and humidity areas.  NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN THESE US STATES AND TERRITORIES: AK, HI, GM, PR, VI.
