Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in sun or part shade in a well-drained soil. Drought tolerant in coastal gardens but does best with a little water. Damaged by frost, but can be cut back to remove damaged growth or correct shape. Tends to be short-lived.

 

Flowering Season

From Late Autumn TO Early Spring

Autumnall through winter, however flowering is triggered by short day length so overcast weather can also extend flowering into spring and summer
