Care Instructions

Water regularly as needed. Feed in spring with an all purpose tree and shrub fertilizer prior to new spring growth. Little pruning is necessary but can rejuvenate an old plant by cutting to ground level prior to new growth in spring. Prune broken or damaged limbs. Best time to prune is after flowering.
