These plants are very low maintenance. They grow well in average soil in full sun. During the first year or two make sure they receive adequate water until they are re-established, and keep them mulched with a few inches of organic mulch such as shredded bark. You might apply a balanced fertilizer (such as 10-10-10) early each spring according to the label instructions. These shrubs may take a few years to come into bloom for you, but they are well worth the wait!
