Green Thumb Guide
Tolerates a wide range of soils but prefers well drained soils with medium moisture. Prune lightly in late winter or early spring if bloom is desired. If bloom not desired, cut back far to encourage growth of vigorous new shoots with larger leaves. Apply an all-purpose fertilizer in spring.ebstone-organics-surestart,coreopsis-nana,corona-174-pruning-lopper-24,black-eyed-susan-vine,ebstone-organics-allpurposeplantfood
