Cultural care

WATER REQUIREMENTS: Low. Once established, quite dry tolerant requiring only occasional long soak during extended periods of heat and at peak flowering times.

CARE: Low maintenance and easy to grow. Happy in most soil types given they are well draining but will perform best in enriched soils. Choose a full sun location although tolerant of light shade. Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring.
Remove spent flower stems not only for more tidy appearance but to encourage further flushes more quickly. A harder prune may be given in early spring to encourage a denser habit and neater shape.
