Kolkwitzia
Beauty Bush

Planting:

Set out in spring, in full sun to light shade. If planting more than one, set 15 feet apart. Kolkwitzia is widely tolerant of soil types. It will thrive even in sandy soils, but good drainage is essential.


Maintenance:

Water well during periods of hot, dry weather. Every year, after flowering is complete, remove the old canes by cutting them back to ground level. This will encourage prolific flowering.


Zones:

Zones 5-8
