Full sun to part shade. Tolerates frost and moderate drought (as the plant matures it becomes more drought tolerant). Prefers well drained soils.
How to use
Ideal for specimen planting, mass planting and in gardens and borders.
Water well for the first year for the plant to fully establish and become more drought tolerant. Top up water in dry periods.
Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended) with the root ball slightly above soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. For best results prune after spring flowering.
