Cultural Notes: Plant in a sunny position and space 20-30cm apart. Do not allow the soil from drying out in between waterings. Lengthen the flowering period by deadheading on regular basis. Iron deficiency can be an issue if pH levels in the soil are too high (too alkaline). Provide chelated iron to the soil if interveinal leaf tissues become yellow in color.
