Adapts to most soils; moist soils with organic matter are preferred.

Prune to shape after flowering.

Grow in well-drained, acidic media. Flowers on old wood, so late-season trimming the season before sale should be avoided. Large foliage necessitates larger containers for best results. Benefits from a protected site and/or heavy mulch in colder end of its hardiness range.
