Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Best color in bright shade or filtered sun; avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.
