Plant in full sun, in a light, well-drained loam or peat soil relatively free of lime. Should grow about 5 feet each year; plant 4 feet apart for hedge use.
Mulch after planting, and repeat for at least the first two years for maximum moisture conservation. Water well during periods of drought. We also recommend adequate winter protection against harsh winds and alternate freezings and thaws, especially in cooler areas of its range. Pruning – can shape as desired.
