Highly adaptable to a wide range of soil types, providing it is well-drained. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce the frequency, continuing with deep waterings. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Seldom needs pruning.
