#ProPlantTips for Care

You'll appreciate the fine-textured, dark green foliage. Keep it healthy with at least six hours of direct sunlight a day.

They need well-drained soil, so add extra dirt in a raised bed if you need to improve drainage. Give them a regular schedule of medium water, especially when they are young plants.

Container-grown plants need careful watering. Never let them dry out completely.

Add a thick layer of mulch in containers and in-ground plants alike. You'll cut down on surface evaporation with this useful garden must-have.

With a graceful form and reduced seed set, you won't need to do much pruning. Plan for their mature height and spread listed on the Plant Highlights for best results.

Shape them, or control size by pruning in early spring, as needed. Make 45-degree angled cuts above an outward-facing bud. Keep your pruners sharp!
