Maintenance Notes
Prefers moist, well-drained soils but will tolerate wet ones. Struggles in hot, dry conditions. Dwarf variety needs little pruning. Fertilize in spring if desired. Lil' Ditty is capable of developing attractive berries, however, it is the only selection of this type that is widely available on the market, so finding a suitable pollinator is difficult. Fortunately, the flowers, high-quality foliage, and useful dwarf habit of Lil' Ditty is enough to make it worthy of planting in your landscape or garden, even if no companion is around for fruit to form.

Uses Notes Mixed borders, foundation plantings. This adaptable, easy-to-grow landscape plant is perfect for mass plantings, foundations, and the outer edge of water gardens.
