Quick Overview:

?Peach Blossom? is a hybrid which is sometimes listed as an A. japonica cultivar and sometimes as an A. x rosea cultivar. It features a foliage mound (to 18? tall) of rich, medium green leaves and wide panicles of peach-pink flowers atop stems typically rising to 24? tall in late spring.

Description

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers moist, humusy, organically rich soils. Soils must not be allowed to dry out. If regularly watered, foliage will usually remain attractive throughout the growing season. A summer compost mulch helps retain soil moisture. Removing faded flower stalks will not prolong bloom but may improve plant appearance, particularly if a ground cover look is desired. On the other hand, many gardeners leave the flower stalks in place after bloom because of the continuing ornamental interest of the dried seed heads. Divide clumps when overcrowding occurs (every 3-4 years).
