Soil : Prefers moist, well-drained, but tolerates a wide range of soils, even poor and sandy/dry if regularly watered during times of drought.
Light: Sun tolerant in cool northern zones. In hot summer areas, plant in part sun.
Water: Best with regular water - weekly, or more often in extreme heat. Tolerates dry shade once plants are established.
Spacing : 12 to 18 inches apart, which is what most gardeners do.
Fertilizing : Very adaptable, and can survive in any well-drained soil. Mulch in between the plants when first planting. This is important to not only retain water, but to also keep the weeds out. After Wintercreeper fills in the area, you will not need to mulch any more.
Winterizing: nothing special required. In severe winters, evergreen foliage may get damaged, but fresh new growth will replace it in spring.
Maintenance & pruning Little pruning is needed, but the plant may be shaped as desired. Trim or shape in mid-late spring, after the new growth has emerged by before it hardens off.
