#ProPlantTips For Care

Plant your Kudos Gold Hyssop in a full sun location. You won't believe how gorgeous the flowers are while shimmering in the sunlight. They love sunny locations so they can bloom to their full potential.

Like most perennial plants, the Kudos Gold Hyssop prefers well drained soil. This is so the roots don't drown in the water and end up rotting. Eventually this plant will be drought tolerant, so they don't love sitting in water.

When first planted, water regularly like any new plant. After the Kudos Gold Hyssop is established in its environment, watering isn't needed as often! Water when the plant is thirsty. You can use the finger test to determine if your plant needs a drink.

To perform a finger test, stick your index finger down into the soil near the base of your plant. If the soil is moist, then don't worry about watering that day. If the soil is dry, give your Kudos Gold Hyssop a nice soaking.

Pruning is recommended during late fall after the blooming season. Remove leftover dead flowers, broken stems, or crossing stems to ensure a beautiful bloom next summer.

Treat your landscape to a few Kudos Gold Hyssops! It will add a unique color and life to your yard! Order yours today from Nature Hills!
