Planting Instructions
It can be grown to highlight other plants or stand out as star of the show with its bright yellow and green foliage. Add a combination of composted cow manure and top soil (or organic peat humus) to the hole when you plant.

Branch trimming: Rather than cutting across leaves looks best, though these shrubs can be kept more manicured with a hedge trimmers. Branches are fleshy and easy to cut even on older plants. Trim as needed for shape, and in spring (late March through early April) you can do a harder pruning for size.

Water regularly but give the plant enough time to dry out between waterings. These shrubs don't like wet locations and are considered drought-tolerant once they're established though a regular, well-timed watering keeps them looking full and lush.
