    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prefers well-drained soils but is extremely adaptable to other soil types. Pruning is best done immediately after flowering; little pruning is needed.

    Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees & shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application. This is a slow growing plant and may need a year in the landscape before it grows noticeably.
