Cultural care

An easy care variety, it grows in most soil types, but will thrive in fertile, well drained locations in your garden. For optimum results, prune back one third of the plant after flowering in early spring to maintain shape, and encourage a dense bushy habit. Fertilise with a general purpose slow release fertiliser at the same time of pruning. Dry tolerant once established. Requires an occasional long soak during extended periods of heat.
