Planting and care

Prepare a potting mixture using equal parts sand, perlite and peat. Fill a pot until there is only 1 inch between the rim of the pot and the surface of the soil.
Identify a healthy branch with a growing tip that has at least two leaves near the tip of the branch. Sever the branch 6 inches below the tip and remove any leaves other than the two closest to the tip of the branch.

Caring for Russelia

  • Dig holes or beds wide, not deep
  • Lightly amend heavy clay or sandy soils with organic matter
  • Gently remove plants from containers, keeping the root ball intact
  • Loosen potting soil and roots around bottom and edges of root ball
  • Plant level with surrounding soil, spreading roots outward
  • Fill around roots with lightly amended native soil
  • Water to settle soil around roots
  • Cover the area with leaf or bark mulch 1 - 3 inches thick but not piled up onto the plants stem and water deeply

Typical uses of Russelia
