How to grow

Full sun, suits sandy or impoverished soil but adaptable to a range of sites provided soil is free-draining . Drought, heat and coastal tolerant once established, protect young plants from frost. Do not over water, dislikes humidity. Remove spent flower-heads to maintain a compact shape, but do not prune too hard as plants don't regenerate from old wood.
