Key FeatureVersatile Dwarf Shrub

Prefers slightly acidic, well-drained soils, rich in organic matter. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune only as needed to maintain desired shape; as a topiary, prune regularly to maintain form.
