Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your shrub in full sun in a spot where it can either climb or cascade. Plant in a hole twice as wide, but just as deep as the root ball. Water thoroughly after planting to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water deeply after planting. Allow the soil to dry before watering deeply again. Rainwater is typically sufficient for the Crossandra, especially in humid climates.
3. Fertilizing: Add a slow-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season, or add a water-soluble fertilizer every 2 weeks.
4. Pruning: Trim as desired for growth control.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

It has been blooming since we got it, had it in a pot and then put it in its permanent home. Looks great with the rosemary next to it!

Orange Marmalade Crossandra Shrub
Unable to tell now since it has not started flowering. Plant received in healthy condition. Bob
Received the plant and it was extremely healthy. Planted in a pot so it can be brought in during the winter but it's growing beautifully, as is everything purchased from Fast Growing Trees.
