                Plant Care

                Plant with top soil or organic peat moss added to the hole. You can also mix in composted cow manure for soil enrichment.

                How much trimming you do depends on how manicured you'd like to keep the plant. Since this little shrub grows slowly, you'll only need to trim occasionally - especially if you don't need a perfectly manicured look.

                Regular watering works best but make sure there's enough time for the plant to dry out between waterings. If you don't have irrigation, hand water during dry spells.

                Plant spacing

                Spacing: Plant 3-4" apart
