Product questions

Little pruning is required - prune after flowering if desired. Avoid cutting into thick stems unless removing them entirely, as recovery will be slow.

Moist, acidic soils - good drainage is necessary.  Though shade tolerant, you'll find flowering and fall color are best with some sun each day.  Plant in an area where you can enjoy the fragrance.
