Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)

Soil: Prefers moist but well-drained, slightly acidic soils.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: If desired, fertilize in early spring using a granular (not liquid) fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose or tree fertilizer. One application a year is sufficient in most areas. However, if you are starting with a very small plant, you may wish to fertilize monthly through late July to encourage more rapid growth.

Pruning: Little needed. You may selectively prune out branches to achieve a desired shape and habit if you wish, but regular pruning is neither required nor recommended.

Other: This is a grafted plant; the look of the trunk, or understock, may vary depending on the grower. If any growth emerges from the ground or along the trunk, remove it with sharp hand pruners.
