Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Grows best in a well-drained soil, in full sun. Too much moisture will cause this selection to grow tall and leggy, and may cause the stems to flop when the flowers appear. Pinch back 1/3 of the foliage twice before early summer, to maintain shape and foliage vigour.
