Planting:

Set plants 4 to 5 feet apart. A sunny location is preferable, though in very hot areas light afternoon shade is beneficial. The soil should be fertile, well-drained and of an acid reaction.


Maintenance:

Plants should be kept well watered; we recommend a summer mulch to help conserve moisture. Prune to shape after blooming season. If signs of nutrient deficiency appear in the form of yellowing leaves, apply a chelated iron fertilizer.
