|Care||Thrives in rich, neutral to slightly alkaline, well-drained soils. Needs good air circulation. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Supplement water before spring bloom, in absence of rainfall or snow melt. Fertilize in early spring. Prune promptly after flowering.|
