How to grow Anasazi

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Anasazi is thought of as tender, so remember to wait until your soil is warm and the night time temperature is well above freezing before moving outside. The USDA Hardiness Zones typically associated with Anasazi are Zone 5 and Zone 13. Try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 6.0 and 6.8 as Anasazi likes to be in weakly acidic soil.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Anasazi about 14 days after your last frost date.
