    Care Information
    Provide rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Shelter from harsh, reflected afternoon sun in hot summer areas. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing.
