Provide evenly moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Protect from harsh afternoon sun in hot southern climates. Water deeply and regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established maintain moist, but not soggy, soil. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring. Prune to shape annually.
