Light: Part sun or filtered light all day.
Soil: Needs moist yet well-drained acidic soil that’s high in organic matter. Grows well in any soil where rhododendron or azalea are thriving.
Water: Average water needs.
Fertilizing: One application of a granular fertilizer formulated for trees and shrubs is sufficient. If your plant is yellowing or otherwise looking sickly, this more likely indicates an issue in the soil pH. While applying fertilizer and/or iron will remedy the issue, the fix is only temporary and you should instead devote your efforts to changing the soil pH for a more sustainable, long-term solution.
Pruning: Little needed; entire stems/branches can be removed as needed. Do not habitually trim or cut back.
