Soil: Any well-drained soil will do; avoid wet or soggy sites.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Little required; apply a granular rose or evergreen fertilizer in early spring if desired.

Pruning: Little required; may be trimmed to shape in late spring, after new growth has emerged, but this is not strictly necessary.
