Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Grows best in full sun, with an average to moist soil. Needs good air circulation to limit mildew issues and prevent the bottom foliage from dropping. Pinch back 1/3 of the foliage twice before early summer, to maintain shape and foliage vigour. Does not require staking.
