Light: Thrives in a spot that is situated in direct sunlight for a minimum of four hours and up to all day exposure.
Soil: Pretty particular about soil. Really enjoys growing in moist, fertile, acidic soil.
Water: Enjoys moist soil. Doesn’t respond well to drought.
Fertilizing: Has high nutrient needs. Apply a fertilizer formulated for plants that enjoy acidic soil at least once in the spring.
Pruning: Pruning is hardly ever needed. You can cut dead wood out in the springtime or prune it to shape in the late winter or early spring after it is done flowering.
Other: Foliage works well as a filler for cut flower arrangements and lasts for a long time.
