Cultural Notes: This plant requires little maintenance and will benefit from tip prune to keep it compact. It is best to initially feed with a slow release low phosphorus fertiliser to help first establish the plant, and it is beneficial to follow up with the occasional reapplication of fertiliser and apply as required. Mulching around the base of the plant will help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Keep moist during dry periods, Low phosphorus slow release fertiliser, Mulch well
