easy care

Do a little, get a lot. Licorice plants are exceptionally easy to grow. They dont need much in the way of fertilizers. Avoid over-watering. Restrained grower with velvety-soft foliage. Pale chartreuse.

  • A wonderful pop of color in a dark corner of the yard. Graceful form, easy care.

  • I used this plant in a container planting. It started out very nice, but as the summer progressed, the leaves started turning grey and then died. I kept cutting out the dead parts, but I finally had to totally remove the plant from the container.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
