For container grown Enkiantus, it is important to loosen the roots to promote rooting of the plant. Dig a hole that is twice the diameter of the container. Enkianthus requires acidic soil with PH levels of 5.5 – 6.5. Back fill the hole with a mixture of existing soil, peat moss and other good organic soil. This will provide the acidity required. Water in thoroughly. Make adjustments if required so that base of plant is slightly above the ground. Apply 2-3 inches of mulch to the top of the soil to keep the roots cool.
Plant care: Enkianthus likes being moist. Water thoroughly every 3 days (if required) for the first three weeks after planting and then on a regular schedule for one year. Avoid hot, dry sites. For the first two years, burlap or use other protection during the winter. In the spring remove mulch to help soil thaw and apply an all purpose fertilizer. Fertilize again after flowering. Reapply the mulch for remainder of year. Deadhead flowers after they fade. Water thoroughly before winter freeze. Enkianthus is deer and rabbit resistant.
