  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Follow a regular schedule of deep waterings during first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Prune lightly to shape and apply an acid fertilizer after flowering. Fertilize minimally to prevent leggy, unattractive growth.
