Description

Care Instructions

Prefers a fertile, loamy soil. Fertilize with an all purpose tree and shrub fertilizer as growth begins in spring. If planting in sun, make sure that you water regularly.

This shrub typically dies back in the winter and re-emerges in the spring to form a nice, uniform clump.
