CARE
Care Provide unamended, well-drained soil, and a wind-sheltered site. Apply a thick layer of mulch to conserve moisture, avoiding the trunk. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Periodic leaf drop is normal; allow to remain as mulch. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring after flowering.
