Applying a three-inch layer of wood mulch over the root systems will help keep the soil cool and moist.Steeds won't tolerate wet soils with standing water. The soil needs to be well-drained.Use raised planting beds if needed to improve drainage. Mound additional soil to 18 - 24 above grade and add a landscape edge. Keep raised beds watered well.Prune to control size or to shape your plants in early spring. Prune the top as a single layer, and ensure the pyramidal sides remain angled. The widest portion should always be at the bottom, so it receives enough sunlight.Enjoy the flat, rounded and richly hued leaves of this stunning broad-leaved evergreen.
