Position: Full sun to moderate shade. Tolerates drought and cold. Suits sandy, sandy loam to clay soils. Great for coastal landscapes.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. After this irrigation is optional for most populated areas. Do not excessively irrigate, making the soil wet for prolonged periods. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil or mulch level.
