Grows easily in average, well-drained soils. Adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions, but does not do well in hot, humid climates. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
