The nodding bell-shaped flowers are pale lime green when first open maturing to an Ivory-cream with a hint of citrus scent.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Prefers well-drained, gritty soil in full sun or part shade with shelter. Plant with the crown at soil level. Whilst the foliage is classed as evergreen, it is best described as semi-evergreen since it looks at its best in winter and spring, they can have a natural dormant period in late summer and mild autumns, when the leaves sometimes go brown.
Care Tips The Cirrhosa Group require a sunny, free draining situation that is sheltered from the worst of the cold winds. If required, prune immediately after flowering. While in a dormant state during summer they do not want frequent watering because this can cause damage to the root, they are used to being dry during the summer.
