Light: Grow in full sun (6+ hrs/day) to part sun (4-6 hrs/day). In deeper shade, color will be dull and habit will be more sparse and open instead of dense and globe-like.
Soil: Any well-drained soil will do; avoid wet or soggy sites.
Water: Average water needs.
Fertilizing: Little required; apply a granular rose or evergreen fertilizer in early spring if desired.
Pruning: Little required; may be trimmed to shape in late spring, after new growth has emerged, but this is not strictly necessary.
