  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water regularly during the first growing season to maintain a deep, extensive root system. In extremely hot, arid summer areas, best with some shelter from harsh, reflected afternoon sun. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing.
