Provide well-drained, moist soil. Best color in bright shade; avoid harsh sun exposures in hot summer areas. Water regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, maintain evenly moist soil. Old, faded foliage may be gently raked to remove. Prune very lightly just before new growth emerges in spring.
