Prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soils, but adaptable to most soil types; avoid wet, shady sites. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply a slow-release fertilizer to the root zone in early spring, avoiding foliage to prevent burn.
