Care Tips This shrub does best in partial shade. It requires an evenly moist soil for optimal growth. Acidic soil will ensure lavender / mauve blooms. Apply a thick mulch around the base in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in colder climates. It is also well-suited for use in outdoor containers.
Flowering June - November
Vase Life Float the flowers on the water in a bath overnight to maximise vase life. To dry, hang them upside down for a couple of weeks.
