Thrives in enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained soil, with sturdy trellis or arbor support. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed in early spring. Trim lightly after flowering to promote repeat bloom. Prune in late winter to shape and control size.
