Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Thin young trees in late winter to early spring, leaving 3 to 7 permanent trunks or canopy branches. On older trees, pruning is not necessary, except to remove any suckers that have emerged from the main trunks or ground. Remove spent flower heads in summer to promote re-bloom.
