We recently purchased a Mahonia shrub. Does it prefer acid or alkaline soil conditions and require any special care?

Thank you!

Mahonia is an evergreen shrub, related to barberry, and there are many species available. Depending upon species, they thrive in neutral to slightly acid soils, in full sun to part shade. Many get by with little water and others require regular watering during the summer months. Wish I could be more concise! Good luck with your new shrub.
