Pristine Pink Beardtongue Care
Pristine Pink Beardtongue requires moist, well-draining soil that can be rocky or sandy. It also prefers neutral to acidic soil pH. For best results, grow it in a location that receives part to full sun, and gets at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily. Adequate sunlight is required to ensure the beardtongue flower stalks stay upright. Fertilizer should be applied yearly during the early spring. Pristine Pink Beardtongue prefers to receive about 1 inch of water per week during the growing season. Once established, they are tolerant of short periods of drought.
Pristine Pink Beardtongue doesn’t need much pruning. Remove spent blooms throughout the growing season to improve the look of the plant. During late winter, you can cut back the foliage near ground level. Mulch will help protect the roots by retaining moisture and warmth.
