General Plant Care:    Care for your shrubs includes monitoring for pests and diseases, periodically checking soil moisture, and providing fertilizer as needed. In general, plants that have sufficient water and the correct amount of fertilizer tend to not have as many pest and disease problems. Water new plants weekly during the growing season in the first year, and as needed after that.
General Planting Tips:    Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove plant from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the plant in the hole. If using slow-release (coated) fertilizer, you may add it according to package directions at this time. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, taking care to keep away from stem or trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Once in spring with a slow-release fertilizer recommended for this plant (shrub, tree) at a rate according to package directions.
General Pruning suggestions:    Summer-flowering shrubs and small trees bloom on new growth (also known as 'new wood') in spring. These plants should be pruned while dormant in the winter time. This will encourage a flush of new growth in spring. This new growth will in turn bear more flowers in summer time.
Bloom Tips:    Remove flower stalks after blooms have faded
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4a to 8b
