Hiryu loves to grow in a partly shaded position. Prune after flowering and in Summer to maintain a compact shape. Once established, Hiryu will grow in most soil types, however, they prefer a well drained slightly acidic soil. When mature they are quite drought tolerant. Fertilise in late Spring and Summer with a good Camellia fertiliser or a complete organic fertiliser. Ideal for screening, hedges or a container plant.
