Naturally grows as a tight, tall, and narrow shrub. New growth may be trimmed to shape in late spring, following plant’s natural habit. Keep well-watered after trimming to prevent browning of edges. Do not cut too hard or cut into thick stems, which will result in slow recovery.
Water regularly, especially after planting prior to establishment. Attempt to keep soil moist but not wet. Once established, 'American Pillar' is able to tolerate a degree of dry soil.
Mulching around the base will help to trap ground moisture.
