#lorapetalum #fringeflower #blurry #badphoto sorry about the fuzzy pic I got so excited when I saw the few scroungy flowers I must have been doing my happy dance while talking the photo!🤦

This is gorgeous! I don't believe that I have ever heard of it! Not sure it would survive our temps here. How do you overwinter this? 💜

#fringeflower it's flowered quite a bit but I don't know why the leaves aren't darker! 🤔 Maybe I should plant it in the ground!?

Have you fed it an evergreen feed?

ShelleySnyder

@columbiariver actually no, what do you feed yours?💘😍

columbiariver

We got serious about the conifers, evergreens and rhodies last year. Began feeding as we were losing arborvitae and rhodies. I just get whichever brand I can find on clearance. Seems to have perked things up Shelley. I'd love to see if it brings this one's leaves dark! http://homeguides.sfgate.com/spring-feeding-azaleas-rhododendrons-36169.html and https://www.homedepot.com/p/Lilly-Miller-16-lbs-Rhododendron-Evergreen-and-Azalea-Food-100099469/202259817.

Love this plant, as Laura @columbiariver says give it a good feed it will do it the world of good if you want to keep it in a pot

comment
ShelleySnyder

@carolgs thanks Carol! I think I've decided that after it blooms I'm going to transplant it into my garden bed with good soil and some good feed and hope it does better! Although this is the most it's ever bloomed which is strange!🤔😁💘😍
