CARING & GROWING:
The organic peat humus as well as composted cow manure added to the hole when you plant. Trim for shape and size in mid-summer, when blooms are less frequent. A hard pruning may be necessary to keep it the size you want.
Water on a regular basis. Though these vines are considered moderately drought-tolerant once established, they do best with regular irrigation and time between waterings to dry out a bit. Fertilize twice a year in spring and fall with a quality granular fertilizer. Supplement feedings with bone meal and/or liquid to promote heavier bloom.
