Lady in Red and Coral Nymph ???'s

Hi all :)

Please excuse all of my newbiee questions here.

I have these two plants (4 of each) in two separate whiskey barrels.

When I purchased these at my local nursery, they were course are very slender and spiky. The littlest wind makes them lean over.

I was wondering if these are going to fill out more bushier as time goes on. I believe the tag stated to plant 8-10 inches apart.

Thanks everyone :)

Yes they will definitely fill out and get bushier. I grow Lady in red every year and never have them spaced far enough apart. The coral nymph will get much taller than Lady in Red. At least mine do...about 3 ft. tall.

Agreed--- Lady in red will bush out give it room. As for the coral nymph I didnt have them before but are growing this year and at this time it appears to be an willowy upright form and I also hope it fills out better.
