Planting Advice

This plant prefers full sun to part shade with enriched, humus rich soils. Mulch around plants to reduce water evaporation and maintain moisture.

Watering needs

This plant requires minimal water once established. Moist, well drained soils are preferable as the leaves may turn brown if allowed to dry out.
