Cultural care

Prefers an open, well draining soil in a full sun location although afternoon shade will be tolerated. Removing spent flowers will encourage further flushes.
Medium watering requirements withstanding some dryness but should be watered regularly during extended periods of heat.
Apply a slow release fertiliser in autumn. Pruning generally not required.
