Neutral myriban On Mar 25, 2010, myriban from Northeast region, NJ (Zone 6b) wrote:

We bought our house with one in a north facing bed and one in a west facing bed and both are doing fine. As a matter of fact the one facing north looks a bit fuller & healthier than the one in the west bed. Both retain their gold color well regardless of the minimal light they receive. I don't know if the Holly Tone I give them every year is responsible or not for their success.
