Thrives in well-drained soils, with morning sun and afternoon shade. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, prefers regular moisture but tolerates brief drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
