Growing Kirengeshoma (Waxbells)

Latin Name Pronunciation: kih-ren-gesh-oh'mah

This genus contains a single species native to Japan, China, and Korea. Given the slightly acid, woodsy soil these plants like, they grow to as much as 4' tall and wide. Plant them in evenly moist soil amended with lots of organic matter, such as compost. Avoid disturbing once established. Takes 2-3 years to reach mature size.
