Heptacodium Plant Care
To establish a deep, extensive root system, follow a regular watering schedule the first year. Before new growth appears in spring, apply a general purpose fertilizer. Fast grower. Can be pruned into an elegant vase-shaped specimen, or maintained as a shrub. If pruning is desired, prune in late winter or very early spring, as the flower buds begin to set shortly after the plant leafs out.
