I typically use it on all my flowering perennials early in the spring. Putting it just down once for the season and seems to make a big difference in the amount of blooms that are produced throughout the summer.

I took them out for those thuja’s I posted before. I also wanted more 24/7/365 privacy.

Crape myrtles - love lots of sunlight! They also love 10-10-10 as they’re heavy nitrogen consumers. They are messy though. The bark will peel as they grow every year, the flowers will go everywhere in the wind, and if you ever want to take one out, you better get ALL of the roots, otherwise be prepared for “suckers” to keep coming up for years.

Aphids will attack the snot out of them!! You must use that feed and protect each year. They’re late bloomers too, will be the last in the yard to come out, but will carry into October in our area Reston.

They also like to drink. Lots of sun, lots of water, 10/10/10, feed & protect, and you should be good!

Mine are 20 years old. They’ve been trimmed back only once. They all look like this one, and the neighbors love them. They’re hell on my gutters, but worth the hassle.
Mine go weeks without water here in FL and never seem to notice anything bad.

Since planted the 2 Acomas and going with 10-10-10, they have really taken off.

Plenty of new growth and cannot wait for their full bloom season next year.
