Watering Notes Weekly watering is needed at planting and until established. Otherwise, water during drought and one deep watering before the ground freezes in winter.
Fertilize Notes Apply a balanced fertilizer yearly in spring or fertilizing can be done organically with materials such as composted manure, bonemeal, and bloodmeal.
Prune Notes Regular pruning helps control this shrub. Take out the oldest branches to make room for new shoots. Pruning is best done just after bloom. Late summer or early fall pruning will decrease the spring blooms.
