how to grow and care
Calliopsis, a vibrant and hardy genus, thrives with basic care centered on full sun exposure, moderate watering, and well-drained soil. Temperatures should generally be warm, with a slight tolerance for slight frost. Regular pruning enhances blooms while preventing diseases. Common challenges include pests like aphids and slugs, powdery mildew, and leaf spots. Seasonal care involves early spring planting for most species, summer feedings with balanced fertilizer, and fall pruning. Protection in excessive winter frost is also recommended.
