Provide well-drained, evenly moist soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures in hot summer areas. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, maintain evenly moist soil. Old, faded foliage may be gently raked to remove. Prune very lightly just before new growth emerges in spring.
