Planting & Care
1. Planting: First, select a location with adequate sunlight – any area with about 6 hours of sun is perfect. The Blue Star performs best on slopes and banks that need erosion control and moist soil areas, or walls and planters where it can grow downward. And if you’re planting as a groundcover variety, place plants about 5 feet apart, or closer if you want faster coverage.
When you’re ready to plant your Blue Star, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the plant in the hole, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry 2 inches down, it’s time to water your plant. However, if it's planted in a moist area, it shouldn't need additional watering.
3. Pruning: Prune during spring, before new growth begins.
