Dwarf Powderpuff Specs

Dwarf Powderpuff Care
You will want to add top soil when you plant. It is not a bad idea to also add composted cow manure to the mix. Only minor trimming occasionally is needed for size and shape. Cutting off the seed pods may promote more blooms. The dwarf powderpuff prefers regular irrigation with time to dry out between waterings. Fertilize 3 times a year with a granular fertilizer. To promote heavier blooming supplement feeding with bone meal.
Dwarf Powderpuff Spacing
Place these shrubs 2-1/2 to 3 feet apart. If you are planting next to the house give them about 2 feet or more. They work fine in containers.
