Customer Questions & Answers

What are the approximate dimensions of the plant when shipped?

I currently have a small hedge that consists of this shrub but several sections have died and need to be replaced. Since this shrub will be shipped without the 2 gallon container (I reside in Washington), and so that I can better determine how many plants I may need, what is the current size of this shrub?
Asked by: GoHawks
Hello, yes, while the 'Green Lustre will ship out with washed roots instead of in a pot with soil, the "after planting" size is approximately 15-18" tall with a similar width. Their foliage is nice and full.

Asked by: bassman
Hello, thank you for your question. The 'Green Lustre can be planted anytime, just be sure to provide 1" of water per week (more or less depending on rainfall and/or irrigation) throughout the dry summer months.

How do I revive a shrub with dying branches? The top was cut once and its been dying ever since.

Asked by: Lil
Hello, Lil. The 'Green Lustre can withstand severe pruning, however, it is important to determine the reason the plant is dying. It prefers light, moist, slightly acid soils, with lots of organic matter. The soil needs to be well-drained, as it will not thrive overly moist soil. Regular watering, however, is needed to keep the plants looking their best. Several inches of mulch will help preserve moisture in the soil. Winter injury in northern climates will be more severe on plants grown in the sun.
