Thrives in average to lean, well-drained soils; best in drier, less humid climates. Water regularly during the first growing season; once established reduce frequency. Diminish watering in the fall to allow hardening off in cold winter zones; in warmer winter areas irrigate occasionally, in absence of rainfall. Fertilize sparingly in spring.
