Provide well drained soil, rich in organic matter. Avoid harsh afternoon sun; best with dappled shade in hot summer areas. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch.
