Grows in any soil unless it is either really wet or dry. Prune in late fall or early spring. Can be heavily pruned, but this is not usually necessary. Prefers medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application. An additional dose of liquid fertilizer may be needed in summer.
Landscapes and containers
Late season color for hedges, perennial or shrub borders, specimen and containers. This is a nice addition to the mixed border, and can also be used as a specimen plant for late summer interest. Excellent for hedging.
Even drought tolerant annual and perennial plants will need water for the first few weeks while they get established. Shrubs and trees will need to be watered for the first year after they are planted. After this, little or no supplemental water will be necessary when planted in the ground. No plant is truly drought tolerant in a container; water is necessary for all plants in containers.
