Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers sun-dappled part shade and moist, sandy loams with a slightly acidic to slightly alkaline pH. Tolerant of pruning and shearing. Avoid cultivating around plants because they have shallow roots. Roots appreciate a good mulch (1-2″). Thin plants and remove dead/damaged branches annually to improve air circulation. (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
