Essentials for Success

For flourishing plants, use potting soil for potted plants or planting mix for garden beds paired with Root Zone starter fertilizer is the perfect duo to foster robust root growth and minimize transplant shock.

Care

Planting & Growing
Thrives in average, lightly acidic, well-drained soil; avoid alkaline soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. More drought tolerant in coastal areas; less tolerant in hot, arid regions. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune to shape after flowering.

Little John

Absolutely perfect for as a single for a small area and works well for borders and groupings. It easy to control and still flower. I don’t care for it’s use in a mass, like a hill, etc. it has so much character that it loses it in mass.
