GROWING & MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR HOMEOWNERS:

Plant in full sun everywhere but the South where afternoon shade is beneficial. Water in well when planted with or without fertilizer and let it dry out 4 inches down between waterings as it is a dwarf and compact plant that requires less water.

Cut back old branches in the fall or spring leaving 3-4 inches at the base
