Cultural Notes: If planting in a large pot, use a good quality potting mixture. Garden soils should be well prepared with cultivation of the area and adding garden compost to the mix. Most soil types are suitable; an application of a complete fertiliser to the garden bed in spring after the main pruning promotes vigorous growth. In winter temperatures to 5°C are tolerated but heavy frosts will cut them back. During the year trim back the older growth when flowers are showing signs of slowing off and getting smaller. The use of a slow release fertiliser is recommended for pot grown specimens. Information and images courtesy of Aussie Winners.
