Light: Thrives in full to part sun conditions, will not get a colorful foliage show if it is grown in full shade. In warmer climates, it does best when positioned in afternoon shade.
Soil: Quite adaptable to all soil types, just needs to have good drainage.
Water: Average water needs.
Fertilizing: Nothing special is required. If desired, you may apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable.
Pruning: Regular pruning is not recommended. It maintains its most handsome natural habit without much shaping. Dead or damaged wood can be removed at any time, just cut back to a set of leaves.
