  • Description

  • Notes

This outproduces the others in the low desert summer and winter. Fine textured; forms a spreading low mound of bright green foliage 6"-8" tall and 4'-5' wide. Will take full sun, moderate grower, trim in late winter to remove any frost damaged foliage.
Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 2 times the width and 1 and 1/2 times the height of the container. 2. Set rootball just above ground level. 3. Mix soil with 25% amendment and %75 soil. 4. Backfill with amended soil. 5. Build basin and water.
