Cultural Notes: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established, then water as required. Avoid planting in summer for humid climates like Sydney, plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil level. Use slow release fertiliser in spring if required. Remove older leaves as required and cut back halfway every 4-5 years (will look better with pruning every 4 years, this depends on your requirements). Where it works: VIC, TAS, SA, WA, ACT & NSW (not suited to north of the Central Coast and QLD)
