Provide rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an root system. In extremely hot, arid summer areas, best with some shelter from harsh, reflected afternoon sun. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing.
