Growing & Maintenance:
In spring, apply balanced fertilizer for acid-loving plants according to package directions. Check soil weekly for moisture. Water thoroughly when dry. Adequate water until the ground freezes is necessary to sustain plant during the winter. Prune after blooming to shape. Do not prune during winter as next year's flowers will be removed. Apply layer of mulch 2-3" deep around plant to protect roots during winter. No additional winter protection other than fall mulching is needed.
