Prefers enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Requires less water in fall and winter, more in growing season. Provide sheltered spot in colder zones; may die back and re-sprout from roots in spring. Apply fertilizer in spring.
