    Care Information
    Provide rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Shelter from harsh afternoon sun in very hot, dry climates. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing, and feed with an acidic fertilizer.
