Hartlage Wine: An Easy-to-Grow Deciduous Shrub
By: Mike Darcy
We don’t have many flowering shrubs with flowers quite like the shape and color of the Calycanthus raulstonii ‘Hartlage Wine’ here in the Pacific Northwest. This vigorous shrub’s wine-red flowers are now blooming in my garden. Reaching a height of perhaps only 6-8 feet, it is easy to trim to keep lower. This deciduous shrub has been easy to grow with no insect or disease pests. I find it does best in a part shade location with protection from hot afternoon summer sun. It should be in bloom at most garden centers now.
When planting your shrub, be sure to amend the soil with Black Gold Soil Conditioner for improved organic matter and success!
