Environmental Requirements:

Prefers sunny positions with protection from hot western sun and winds. Can tolerate part sun positions, but flowering will be reduced.

Hardiness:

Protect from hot dry winds and late frosts.

Soil / Drainage:

Prefers well drained soils that have been improved with organic matter and a mildly acid to neutral pH. Mulch the shallow feeding roots to protect them from drying out. Be careful when weeding or digging not to damage the shallow feeding roots.

Pruning:

Prune after flowering, train to a single leader, then only to improve the shape, or to remove crossing branches. Remove the entire shoot, rather than just shortening it, shortened shoots tend to become stunted.

Watering:

Keep moist to avoid leaf burn.

Fertilising:

Fertilise with a complete fertiliser after flowering, until established, then only to invigorate an old plant.

Pests / Diseases:

Leaf burn occurs in hot dry areas, on saline soils, or from fertiliser salts build up in the soil. Iron deficiencies occur on alkaline soils.
