Grows easily in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to develop an extensive root system. Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; continue to water container plants regularly. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a formal appearance, prune annually after flowering.
