Grows best in full sun, has a higher bloom count and better disease resistance when it gets 6+ hours a day.
If you'd like to prune, do so after it has bloomed in the spring. Pruning during this short window of time will ensure that you don't remove next year's blooms as they form on new growth.La Vida Grande® Rhaphiolepis indica 'SMNRI20F' USPP 34,145
