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. No pruning generally required other than shaping to style. A light trim after flowering will, however, help to maintain a neat, compact shape. Apply a slow release fertiliser after flowering for best results.
