Light: Will thrive in the full range of sun conditions. It gets the best foliage color and highest bloom count with a few hours of direct sun.
Soil: Adaptable to most soils, except those that stay wet. Any period of extended sogginess will not be tolerated.
Water: Average water needs, once established, it’s quite drought tolerant.
Fertilizing: Nothing special required. If desired, you may apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable.
Pruning: Rejuvenation pruning every 3 to 5 years is recommended – this is the process of removing 1/3 of the thickest branches all the way to the ground. Can be pruned to shape in the springtime.
Other: Makes a great cut flower or foliage filler for arrangements.
