Highly adaptable; prefers enriched, moist, well-drained soils but tolerates clay, sand and wet locations when established. Water regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Apply a balanced fertilizer in spring. To encourage bright red stems, annually prune to remove one-third of oldest stems, leaving strong young whips.
