How to Use Marley's Pink Parasol Japanese Snowbell in the Landscape
The weeping form of Marley's Pink Parasol Japanese Snowbell is a perfect accent to highlight your courtyard or entryway. It will stay small and is narrow enough to decorate a tight, sunny space.
Use them in containers, or plant them directly in the ground. Try flanking one on either side of your front door for outstanding curb appeal.
People will stop and stare as the spring breezes gently sway the arched branches dripping with the beautiful pink blooms. Delight your guests with the light, cotton candy fragrance.
Consider Marley's Pink a living piece of sculpture. Use it as the focal point of a carefully planned Japanese Garden or Meditation Garden room.
Use it as a high profile specimen in a berm planting, or island garden bed. Use it in a rock garden, or behind a waterfall or water feature. No matter where you place it, be sure to light it with exterior night lighting. Celebrate it all day and night.
Thick, luxurious summer foliage can be allowed to drip to the ground and provide a strategic sense of privacy. Plant multiples in a curve behind your patio seating as a luscious flowering privacy screen.
Use several along the back of a garden bed. Asymmetrical branching ensures each tree has a distinct charm and character. They can be placed in loose, informal planting patterns.
Or, play with contrast by planting a few of these pretty, free form trees in a precise, formal row. The juxtaposition between form and position would be fascinating!
Try them as facing trees on the sunny side of larger evergreen trees and shrubs. You'll appreciate how the gently downturned branches and fine-textured foliage softens stalwart Spruce or Yew, coordinates with pensive Pine, and helps tame shaggy Juniper.
Train your plant to have some character. Encourage main branches to grow into a beautifully asymmetrical form. Thoughtfully thin it out by removing extraneous branchlets back to the main branches. You'll give the interior more sunlight and improve the air circulation as you add more sculptural interest.
Or. . .you can simply let it grow as it will. Either way, it will knock your socks off all through the year.
This long-lived tree makes such a special gift to celebrate a birth, graduation, marriage or major accomplishment. Use it to commemorate the passing of someone you love.
Host springtime parties when your trees are in bloom. Please consider including some comfy seating nearby and underplant with ground covers or spring flowering bulbs and perennials.
You'll love making memories with the people you care about. These small trees make the perfect specimen to highlight an area that you use a lot.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Give Marley's Pink Parasol a sunny, protected site with moist, well drained soil that has good organic matter. It loves a layer of mulch over the root system.
It will grow and flower best in full sun, although the hottest climates may consider giving part shade in the afternoon. It will tolerate almost any soil, as long as it drains well. Raise up your containers on bricks to ensure rain water can flow out through the drain hole. Please don't use saucers underneath exterior containers.
Give it a moderate amount of regular water. Container plants may need more watering and can be set up with automatic drip irrigation to keep it easier on yourself. Check below the surface of the soil to see if it's moist. You'll want to adjust the timing as needed for the best results.
Do any pruning that may need to be done after the bloom, if needed. Use a light hand and remember to study your tree before you tackle pruning. Better to create a pruning plan beforehand.
Deer seem to leave this plant alone. However, if you live in an area with high deer population, spray with a deer repellent on the first day you plant it. This will remind the deer they do not like it. Reapply as needed, following the directions on the can.
