Planting & Care
Plants do not thrive in Zones 9 to 10 without a period of refrigeration; they need a cold, dormant period. Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential.
Sunlight: Full sun to part shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Temprature: 10 ÌŠC
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- Do not prune plants in the fall.
- Simply cut off any dead or diseased canes.
- Stop fertilizing 6 weeks before the first frost but continue watering during dry autumn weather to help keep plants fortified during the dry winter.
- Mound, mulch, or add compost after a few frosts but before the ground freezes.
This tree or shrub has somewhat limited ornamental value. Good for hedgerows, screens, naturalized woodland areas or integrated into native plantings.

No serious insect or disease problems. Prickly ash is a food plant for larvae of the giant swallowtail butterfly, and considerable defoliation may occur in some years.
