Prefers organically rich, well-drained soils, with shelter from harsh afternoon sun. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize regularly during growing season. Blooms on old wood; prune to shape in summer after flowering. Remove weak, damaged stems in early spring.

It wanted to live!
by Vikki, March 25, 2020

I picked this up at Lowe\'s and it was bone dry and on clearance because it was pretty dead. I planted it 3 weeks ago and it is already amazing and beautiful!

Small, but Mighty!

When I picked up my plants from the local nursery I was a bit underwhelmed. However, as the season warmed up, the clouds drew back and the sun began shining, I was in for a surprise! My two little Munchkins exploded with new life, sending out strong, bright green growth in every direction! I am delighted with their performance and vigor!
