With its more dwarf habit, this beautybush can be used as a small hedge or foundation plant.Maintenance Notes:
Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types. If necessary, prune immediately after the spring bloom. It blooms on old wood and has a naturally arching habit that looks best unpruned. Best flowering occurs in full sun, but light shade isn't harmful, particularly in warmer climates.
If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.Jolene Jolene™ Kolkwitzia amabilis 'SMNKADTF' USPPAF, Can PBRAF
