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. Vigorous growth and elegant silver-frosted foliage.

  • Perfect plant for filling out containers or simply on its own. A winner in strawberry pots. Can grow up and out to be bigger than expected, but can be trimmed back throughout the season if desired Cuttings are beautiful in flower arrangements. Haven't ever seen pests or diseases of any sort attracted to this plant. Will perform well in many light conditions.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Outstanding filler plant. Subtle color and airy texture add "that certain something" to containers.
    Slightly frost tolerant. Cut back to about 12" and bring inside for the winter; keep well-lighted and keep a bit on the dry side.
