Thrives in average to lean, well-drained soils; best in drier, less humid climates. Water regularly the first season to establish the root system; less often once established. Diminish watering in the fall to allow hardening off in cold winter zones; in warmer winter areas irrigate occasionally in absence of rainfall. Fertilize sparingly in spring.
