Thrives in organically rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Shelter from harsh afternoon sun exposures and drying winter winds. Let fallen leaves stay, to serve as organic mulch and prevent weeds. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring.
