#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant in full sun for the best results. Give the plant at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.

It requires well-drained soils to thrive. If your soil holds water, create a raised planting bed to improve drainage. Or, create a mounded heap of soil to plant in.

While your plant is young, please provide a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Give a thick layer of mulch over the top of the root system. Once it becomes established in your landscape, it will become quite drought tolerant.

Prune in late winter, as needed. Remove crossing or broken branches to open the canopy to sunlight and air circulation.
