Thrives in deep, enriched, evenly moist, well-drained soil; dislikes dry conditions. Mulch around root zone and shelter from drying winds. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. No pruning needed to maintain compact, rounded form.
Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag - this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden. Be aware that in our climate, most plants cannot be expected to survive the winter if left in containers outdoors, and this plant is no exception.
