Cultural care

Grows well in most soil types which are well draining. Low maintenance once established. Tolerates dry conditions well but should be given an occasional long soak during extended periods of heat.
Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring to encourage profuse flowering.
Prune back hard in early spring to remove old stems revealing new growth.
