Common name: Platycladus orientalis Westmont
Color: green
Bloom time: Non-flowering
Height: 2.00 to 4.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall. All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil. Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot. Most plants are grafted onto the common rootstock because of its superior hardiness.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 65-70 degrees F

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • Clean away from around the base of the rosebushes any trimmed debris that can harbor disease and insects.
  • Late in the season, stop deadheading rugosas so that hips will form on the plants; these can be harvested and dried on screens, away from sunlight, then stored in an airtight container.


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.
  • Also, select a site that gets full sun.


Special Feature:
Small hedge, foundation, border, accent or small garden. Container.
