Design Ideas: An ideal background shrub that is large enough to block out offending views. Nicely fills corners or encloses water features with its open spreading habit. Light pink adds brightness to dull corners and buildings painted dark green or gray. Ideal plant in larger shrub beds adjacent to lawns.

Thrives in well-drained, sandy soils, though very adaptable. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Water deeply, less frequently, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.

History
