Cultural Notes

  • Soil - Well drained soil
  • Position - Sun or part shade
  • Cutting - suitable for cutting
  • Flowering - Summer
  • Additional Information - Pruning is best undertaken in early to mid spring, once all signs of frost have passed and when you can see the stem slightly bulging, as this is where a new shoot is developing. Undertaking a hard, annual prune will promote significant growth and an abundance of flowers. Apply a regular feed and water throughout active growth, especially during periods of drought. Propagate by soft wood cuttings in spring or summer. Fully hardy perennial.
