Maintenance Notes: 

These are heat-tolerant plants, that aren't particularly fussy and need little routine maintenance. They will perform best if an application of controlled-release fertilizer is included at the time of planting. This applies to both landscape and container plantings. Supertunias are heavy feeders, but a single dose is usually sufficient for landscape beds in most climates. If you have a very long season, a second application of controlled release plant food should be considered for landscape plantings.
