Cultural care

Hardy and easy to grow, it will tolerate some shade, however the best colour is produced when planted in well drained soil and a full sun position.
Grows well in most soils which are well draining. Once established water requirements are low but do not allow to dry out over extended periods of heat.
Generally no pruning required other than removal of spent flower stems to encourage further flushes.
In cold climates foliage will recede during winter with fresh, colourful new growth reappearing in spring. Apply a slow release fertilser during spring for best results.
