Plant my false spiraea
Plant sorbarians from late fall to early spring, in the sun or partial shade in moderately rich, cool, drained soil.
Dig a hole twice as large as the root ball, without mixing the layers of soil that you will replace in order after planting.
Plant without burying the base of the stems, tamp the soil well around the roots, then form a hollow and water until the water no longer flows visibly.
If you are planting in the winter, prune all the branches to ground level, to promote vigorous regrowth.
Water my false spiraea
Sorbarians are rather resistant to drought.
So no need to water except the first few months. The first month after planting, pour a watering can each week at the base of your sorbarian if it does not rain a lot.
Prune my false spiraea
You do not have to prune!
If your sorbarian looks decidedly too entangled, in March remove some of the main branches in the heart of the shrub, those that come back in and all the dead wood.
