Provide full sun or partial sun. Too little light will cause growth issues. 

Fertilization is suggested, especially if soil is poor. Our slow release fertilizer is a great option. 

Does best in soil with great drainage. 

Pruning or trimming seldom needed. It's suggested to do any trimming in the early spring.

Water regularly, especially after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil moist, but not wet. It's suggested to place 2"-3" of mulch under this plant to help retain a light degree of ground moisture and to prevent the growth of weeds around the base.
