Use

Indoors: keep the plant in a cool room while blooming and water regularly. Outdoors: as an isolated specimen or in association with other acid-loving shrubs such as Azaleas, Magnolias or Rhododendrons. Patio or terrace: in large containers, or trained against a wall or trellis.

Planting

Ideally in partial shade, protected from cold winds. Remove the plant from its container and thoroughly soak the root ball. Prepare a mixture of 25% peat, 50% ericaceous soil and 25% potting soil. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and half-fill it with this mixture, then place the plant (not too deeply) in the hole. Finish adding the compost and water well.

Maintenance

Water regularly during flowering and dry weather. Add a specialised fertiliser each spring. Takes well to pruning after blooming.
