Care Grows easily in a wide range of soils, provided well-draining. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.
