Low maintenance and easy to grow. Once established, quite dry tolerant requiring only occasional deep watering during extended periods of heat. Plant in a sunny location in a well draining soil. Clip back to two thirds of overall size in late summer to maintain shape and vigour. After pruning an application of slow release fertiliser and a light sprinkling of dolomite lime over soil would be beneficial to overall performance.
