Integrate into shrub border for more variety of form in every season.

Provide enriched, slightly acidic, loamy, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune only to remove old, damaged or dead branches.

History
