Provide enriched, acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. In very hot, arid summer areas, best with some shelter from harsh, reflected afternoon sun. Apply an acidic fertilizer in spring. Before new growth begins, remove twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing.
