Planting and care

  • Established plants are extremely drought tolerant. They do need some water, during the summer, but do not leave the soil wet for prolonged periods.
  • Allow the soil to dry out between waterings in the winter, when they are somewhat dormant.
  • Since they are growing in sandy soil, nutrients will need to be replenished.
  • Fertilize annually, but lightly. Too much fertilizer will cause a lot of leggy growth.
  • Taller varieties can get floppy.
  • You can prune them back to where the stem is firm, in very early spring.
  • You can even root the cuttings. Plants can be divided or repotted in early spring.
  • If you are growing them in containers, they enjoy spending the summer outdoo
