Garden Style: Cottage
Design Ideas: Superior shrub for foundation planting under windows or at entry and porch. Blooming plants are bright enough to provide a more long range focal point. Essential to the shrub border but also works well in the back of perennial borders for mass. Makes a good accent for softening corners and framing art and other focal points. Great choice for romantic cottage garden compositions and causal country gardens along picket fences or rails.

Provide organically rich, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought in temperate coastal regions. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
