Planting / Care: Prefers enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Requires less water in fall and winter, more in the growing season. Provide a sheltered spot in colder zones; may die back and re-sprout from roots in spring. Apply fertilizer in spring. Pruning time: winter. Water regularly - weekly, or more often in extreme heat or containers. For more information click here.
