Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Minimal pruning is required. Deadhead or remove spent fruits to encourage new growth and maintain appearance.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the early growing season for optimum fruit and foliage development.

Winter Protection: In colder zones, bring the plant indoors before the first frost or consider it a seasonal feature to be replaced the following year.


Choose a location that receives full sun. Prepare the soil by mixing in organic matter for better drainage and nutrient content. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and place the plant in it, making sure it's at the same level as it was in its original pot. Backfill the hole and gently press the soil to remove any air pockets. Water thoroughly after planting. For container gardening, ensure your container has adequate drainage and use a well-draining potting mix.

'Midnight Fire' thrives in full sun and requires moderate watering. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.
