Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Tolerant of a wide range of soils; prefers average, loamy, moist, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, water as needed to maintain evenly moist soil. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune annually after flowering to shape.
