New Jersey Tea is excellent as a shrub border and a is a fabulous addition for native plant gardens.

Best in sandy loams or rocky soils with good drainage. Thick, woody, red roots go deep and help plant withstand droughty conditions, but make established shrubs difficult to transplant.

Plants grown without harmful pesticides and are safe for butterfly gardens.
