CARE
Care Provide slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Best color in full sun, but tolerates light shade. Water deeply and regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; prefers regular moisture but tolerates drier soils. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
