Cultural Notes: Drought hardy, however extra watering at the time of flower buds appearing will benefit flowering performance. Best to keep plants moist during dry periods, especially in pots. Feed bi-annually with a controlled release fertiliser. Pruning not required, just break off old, spent stems at the base and a new shoot will later be produced.
