Border, Container, Espalier, Mass Planting, Privacy Screen, Woodland Garden. Plant in mass in a woodland setting for best effect at a distance. Works wonderful in an Asian design or up close to your outdoor living area in beds, containers or foundation plantings. Can be trained as an espalier to soften retaining and privacy walls.
Pair this beautiful, double bloomer with low growing, big leafed varieties of Hosta, Coral Bells, and Hydrangea. Provide filtered sun with smaller canopy trees such as Cherry, Dogwood and Magnolia. For an Asian theme, design with mixed Azaleas, Bamboo and fragrant Gardenia.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
