Thrives in sandy, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; will tolerate wet soils if well-drained and moderate drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
