Plant Care
Planting:

Propagate from suckers in fall or early spring or from cuttings (greenwood and semi-ripe in summer, hardwood in fall).

Plant Growth:

Deciduous, suckering shrubs. Up to 4-7 feet tall. Grows best in full sun or partial shade. Works well in a shrub border. Fast-spreading, as stems will root wherever they have ground access.

Blooming:

Small greenish white flowers in 3-inch panicles in late spring.

Soil and Irrigation:

Acidic soil, well amended with organic matter to retain moisture and improve drainage.

Pruning:

After flowering, cut back flowered shoots to stronger lower shoots or buds. Established plants should be pruned more extensively; cut back old shoots to the base to promote new growth. Can become weedy.

Pests:

Uncommon.
