Gardening Suggestions for Sweet Shrub:

Sweet Shrub is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Grows somewhat taller in shade than in sun. Tolerant of a wide range of soils, but prefers rich loams. Prune immediately after flowering to shape or maintain compactness. Tends to sucker and often forms colonies in the wild. Remove root suckers promptly if naturalization is not desired. Produced using Forrest Keeling's patented RPM Root Production Method ® technology for exceptional growth and survivability.
