|Special Features||Easy Care, Fall Color, Improved Pest and Disease Resistance, Showy Fruit, Edible, Multi-Season Interest|

|Companion Plants||Evergreen Clematis (Clematis armandii); Lavender (Lavandula); Coneflower (Echinacea); Arborvitae (Thuja); Switch Grass (Panicum); Cedar (Cedrus)|
|Care||Provide enriched, loamy, well-drained soil. Shelter from harsh winds. Water deeply and regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply a general purpose slow-release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
