Cultural Care

Dry tolerant once established but will benefit from occasional deep watering during extended periods of heat.  Avoid 'wet feet' by growing in well draining soil.  Suited to full sun location.  In colder regions may become herbaceous with fresh new growth reappearing in spring.  Pruning generally not required although older foliage can be trimmed back to tidy if required.  Feed with a slow release fertiliser during spring for optimum results.
