Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your San Antonio Rose Texas Ranger in a location that receives 6+ hours of direct sunlight per day. When planting, dig a hole that is a little wider than the container the plant was shipped in and approximately the same depth. Remove the shipping container, loosen the roots, and place the plant in the hole. Backfill the dirt and water immediately to help settle the soil.
2. Watering: Immediately after planting, water deeply. Continue watering as needed until the plant is well established (but allow the soil to dry out between waterings). Once established, you may only water when the soil becomes dry more than 2 inches down.
3. Pruning: Prune in late winter before the shrub starts to flower. Using a hand cutter, trim less than a third of the top growth. The spikier the plant, the more flowers it will produce.
4. Fertilizing: Do not fertilize after planting; this plant prefers poor-quality soil.
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.
