Madrone I like the article

Light MadroneSole pieno
During this time of year the The Madrone can be grown outdoors. During the winter months we can cover a portion of the soil near the roots with dry leaves or other mulch tissue; in this manner we will protect the plant from the harsh climate.Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light.

Cultivation Madrone
The Madrone develops like a tree. This plant in the winter assumes a red colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 8 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub.

Fertilize Madrone
Letís remember to fertilize our shrubs often; we can fertilize enriching our soil with manure, at the end of the winter; or we can give it a fertilizer for flowering plants, every 20-25 days, when watering. If the shrubs are large or cover a large area, we can use a slow release granular fertilizer, to be used every 3-4 months. In the spring letís favour fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of a new vegetation and of flowerings.

Water MadroneTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 buckets of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 2-3 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases.
