Planting Guide

In the garden, plant in well-drained soil in early spring before the heat of summer, or plant in early fall. Prune if needed for hedges or to keep smaller. For container growing, transplant to a larger pot to allow for growth and easier water management.


Partial shade in hot areas. Full sun in moderate coastal zones.


0℉ to 105℉. USDA Zones 7–10.


Keep well watered but not soggy. Can dry quickly in the pot. Be careful to avoid excessive drying or plant may not recover.


During spring and summer growth, feed with a balanced fertilizer.
