  • Care
    Care Information
    Best in moist soil although will tolerate dry soils. Thrives under acid or alkaline soils. Best if pruned immediately after blooming. May be pruned to the ground each year and treated like a perennial, though this may compromise flowering. This plant will benefit from a good hard pruning as a young plant. Best with high moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs.
