Planting Density: 2-4 plants per m², 1.5-3 plants per linear metre. (in areas where the plant can grow larger plant at the lower density)

Position: Full sun to light shade. Suits most soil types, prefers free draining soils. Avoid wet feet or depressed planting areas. Tolerates frost and drought.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring.

Leave unpruned in its tidy natural shape or prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier shape).

Where it works: NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and South East QLD (not suited to Northern QLD).
