Easy to grow; adapts to most average, well-drained soils. Avoid poorly drained, soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. For best fall color, site in full sun, avoid drought stress, and do not heavily prune.
