Cultural care

Low maintenance and easy to grow in most soil types which are free draining. Dry and frost tolerant once established. Removing spent flower stems will help prolong flower displays whilst a prune back of older foliage during late winter will tidy and encourage a dense habit. Apply slow release fertiliser in spring and protect from snails for optimum results.
