Planting & Care
1. Planting: Though it tolerates partial shade, particularly during the afternoon hours, it thrives in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Dig your hole only to the depth of the shrub’s root ball. Once you’ve placed the shrub in your the hole, ensure you backfill the soil. Your shrub should also be planted in an area with well-drained soil to avoid root rot and planted away from downspouts.
2. Watering: During the first year after planting your shrub, a regular watering schedule is essential. Water the shrub each week if the natural rainfall for your area doesn’t supply enough water. If you're not sure when to water, just check the surrounding soil - if the soil is dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Perform a soil test in the area where your shrub is or will be planted. If fertilizer is recommended per your soil test results, apply during spring, when new growth emerges. New growth will be easy to spot because fresh leaves are toned with a vibrant shade of light, bright green.
