CARE
Care Thrives in enriched, well-drained, lightly acidic soils. Mulch root zone to conserve moisture and keep roots cool. Protect from drying winter winds to reduce tip dieback. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize in early spring. Prune as needed to shape.
