Planting & Care
They are usually shipped in the spring as bare roots when plants are fully dormant, well before they have leafed out. They’ll look like a bundle of sticks on arrival.

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 18°c night, 24°c day

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • To help conserve water, reduce stress, and encourage healthy growth, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of chopped and shredded leaves, grass clippings, or shredded bark around the base of your plants.
  • Allow about an inch of space between the mulch and the base stem of the plant.

  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.


Note:
