<Tips for growing fuiri Murasaki Shikibu>
Fuiri Murasaki Shikibu grow well in full sun or partial shade.
Ideally, they should be planted where they receive some sunlight, but not long hours of direct sun.
If placed in a bright location, protect the plants from strong direct sunlight with a sunshade during the morning hours.
They prefer soil with good drainage.
Good water management is also required. Water when the topsoil becomes dry.
Avoid excessive watering, which can cause root rot. Check soil moisture to ensure proper watering.
In cold climates, bring the plants indoors in winter, or if leaving them outdoors, use protective coverings or other means to maintain an appropriate temperature.
