    Care Information
    Provide well-drained soil. Water regularly the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Best with regular moisture but tolerates brief drought, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy, neat appearance, shear annually to shape.
