Care Guide

  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during hot and dry periods. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings to avoid overwatering
  • Maintenance: Monitor for pests and diseases and treat promptly as needed
  • Pruning: Cut back in late winter or early spring to encourage new growth and maintain a compact shape
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive foliage growth and decreased blooming.
