    Care Instructions

    Plant in full sun in a well drained soil, and apply a general purpose slow release fertiliser after flowering.
    Watering requirements are low once established, needing only an occasional long soak during extended periods of drought
    Regular light tip pruning after flowering will encourage a dense bushy habit and new flower growth for the following season.
    For hedging, space at intervals of approximately 50cm.
