Can You Get Cafe Ole to Its Proper Color?
I'm having a dickens of a time getting Cafe Ole' to its namesake color. I've tried different combos of morning sun, afternoon sun, dappled sun and I can never get anything other than a silvery mauve color.
Can those of you with a creamed coffee colored Cale Ole' tell me how it is done? Is it sun-shade combo? Soil pH? Air temperature/humidity? Type of fertilizer?
I would think that the color was an urban garden myth, but I did happen to see a huge Cafe Ole' at the nursery at Uncommon Rose, whose color was true to its name.
I'd appreciate any words of wisdom...
