Quick Overview:

Kokonoe-yama plants have a compact, dense, mounded growth habit. Each leaf blends green with a wash of gray flecks and streaks giving the plants a decidedly silver sheen. Pink or blue lacecap flowers provide added value during the summer months.

Description

Best grown in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade. Soil pH affects the flower color (blue in highly acidic soils and lilac to pink in slightly acidic to alkaline soils). Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to make the flowers bluer or add lime to the soil to make the flowers pinker. Begin soil treatments well in advance of flowering, as in late autumn or early spring. Plants generally need little pruning. If needed, prune immediately after flowering by cutting back flowering stems to a pair of healthy buds. Prune out weak or winter-damaged stems in late winter/early spring. Best to mulch plants year-round with 3″ of shredded bark, peat or compost. Winter hardy to USDA Zone 6.
