Although hardier than other varieties, in cold exposed areas container-grown specimens will benefit from a deep dry winter mulch.
- Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month from spring until the plant flowers. In cold exposed areas protect the crown of the plant with a deep dry winter mulch.
