    How it works

    NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and South East QLD (not suited to Northern QLD).

    Full sun to light shade. Suits most soil types, prefers free draining soils. Avoid wet feet or depressed planting areas. Tolerates frost and drought.

    Care Instructions

    Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Leave unpruned in its tidy natural shape or prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier shape).
