Certified GKH Gardening Expert
Japanese andromeda prefers a moist, well-draining, organic and slightly acidic soil. It prefers partial shade but will tolerate full sun (may require additional watering in these areas, however, to keep soil moist and cool). You will want to avoid harsh, windy areas too, so look for a sheltered location if wind is a factor.
