Care Practices
Plant in acidic, moist, well-drained soil in an area with full sun to half shade. Keep protected from winter storms and freezing temperatures, as these shrubs are not cold hardy. They tolerate high temperatures, drought, pollution, and a variety of soil types once established. Not recommended for container-growing. Water only when top 2 inches of soil become dry. Prune annually in early spring to shape.
