How to take care of Enkianthus Campanulatus
For best results soak the roots for approx 2 hrs before planting and water well after planting and for the next few weeks. Add peat at planting time. Plant it in sun or partial shade and you will be rewarded with lots of long-lasting flowers.
Use a well-drained fertile soil that does not dry out. Apply mulch and feed regularly in spring. Pruning is not required but you can remove dead or unwanted branches after flowering.
