Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Extremely drought and heat tolerant once established and grows best in a moist to average soil, in full sun to partial shade. Cutting the foliage half way down the stalks prevents reseeding and maintains a compact structure. Caution: wear gloves while pruning this plant. The milky sap may severely irritate the skin and eyes and may cause severe discomfort if ingested.
