Green Thumb Guide
Thrives in enriched, sandy, well draining soil. Feed with a rose and flower fertilizer before new growth in spring, and again mid season. Spread mulch around roots to protect from hot, dry winds. Promote new growth early spring by pruning vigorously after threat of frost. Requires at least six hours of full sun, preferably with afternoon shade.
These characteristics apply to the greater Sacramento area and nearby regions.
