Cultural Care

Grows well in most soils which are well draining. Once established water requirements are low but do not allow to dry out over extended periods of heat. Generally no pruning required other than removal of spent flower stems to encourage bushy growth. When pruning use gloves as sap can be irritating to skin and eyes. Apply a slow release fertilser during spring for best results.
