Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Prefers well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Remove old stems and feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth in spring. Plant the crown three inches below grade to increase general hardiness in colder climates. Prune hard after flowering to rejuvenate from the base.
