Welcome spring with unique color: a dusty rose, accented by red and yellow. Sister Rosie® cytisus is a flurry of elegant blooms in spring, with eye-catching appeal at retail and in the landscape. Unique, finely-textured foliage gives the plant a memorable presence all season long. Drought tolerant and deer resistant. Not recommended for the Northwest.
Light: Needs full sun to thrive. Will not grow robustly in anything less than six hours of direct exposure to the sun.
Soil: Requires well-draining soil and will even thrive in rocky areas.
Water: Does not like regular water and is happily drought tolerant once it’s established.
Fertilizing: Not necessary.
Pruning: Periodic rejuvenation pruning is recommended to provide the most floriferous display. New growth bears the most flowers, while old growth is more sparse. If you’d like to shape the plant, do so after it flowers in the springtime.
Other: This plant is not recommended for the Northwest, as it can grow too prolifically.
