Depth & spacing: 80cm apart.
Watering: Drought tolerant once established but, like most plants, does best with sufficient moisture.
Frost tolerances: Frost hardy.
Flowering time: Late Spring, Summer & Autumn.
Preferred soil: Free draining soil & high in organic matter. Very tolerant of a wide range of pH levels.
Preferred aspect: Full sun.
Ideal climates: Sub-tropical to cool.
Pruning: Cut back after flowering to maintain dense foliage.
