Maintenance Notes

Prefers well-drained, loose soil. Does not like to be oversaturated - good drainage is required. Prune in spring down to where new growth is sprouting. In Northern states, this plant will die back to the ground though roots are hardy. In the South, cut back if needed. Trim to shape in late winter/early spring. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rates of application.
