Watering Notes Water weekly the first year of planting. Once established, supplemental water during periods of drought is usually all that is necessary.
Fertilize Notes Feed with a general purpose fertilizer like 5-10-5 when planting. Established plants shouldn't be fed heavily. Use fertilizer at half-strength in the spring as new growth appears.
Prune Notes Height can be controlled by pruning but barriers need to be used to control the spread. Significant removal needs to be done several times in a season to control.
