It has an elegant multistemmed vase shape, or may be trained to one trunk. Thriving in any well-drained soil — even the poor ones of urban areas — it asks only for adequate drainage and frequent watering during dry periods. Drought won’t kill this tree, but it does reduce flowering for the season. It blooms on new wood, but you needn’t prune it back unless it becomes too large for your garden. Easy and very low maintenance!
