Sowing, Seeds, Planting They prefer nutrient-poor alkaline soils, and should not be overwatered, as this will often cause death. Plants may not be highly tolerant to frost and other stresses until they are established and mature, so young plants may need light watering or a small nutrient supplement if necessary (via a slow-release native plant fertiliser).
Care Tips This plant is ideal for containers as it can be protected from frosts and winter wet by using suitable well draining planting media. Position in a warm sunny spot and do not over water.
