Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
PLANTING GUIDESoil: Low-fertility, well-drained soil.
Light: Full sun -- will grow in light shade, but will not bloom as well. In hot areas a little shade from nearby shrubs is useful.
Water: Regular watering if kept in very hot full sun conditions.
Spacing: 12 to 24 inches
Fertilizing: Apply a spring application of compost or low nitrogen fertilizer if growing in pots, or very poor soil.
Winterizing: In frost-prone areas, dig up and pot, or move container plants to winter in a greenhouse.
Maintenance & Pruning: Can shear lightly after flowering to remove fruit capsules, and spur new leafy growth. Subject to root rot or fungus -- but only if over watered, or too shaded. Can easily be propagated from cuttings.
