Cultivation: Like a sunny position but can also be grown out of
where frost is not too severe , it can tolerate temperatures down -5°C
(-10° if the roots are kept dry). It does best in a mineral soil, but is
tolerant of a wide range of soil types. Good drainage is essential.
Water sparingly during the summer months and keep dry in winter. It is a
slow growing long lived plant and once established, it will be content
in its position and with its soil for years. It can tolerate moderate
shade, and a plant that has been growing in shade should be slowly
hardened off before placing it in full sun as the plant will be severely
scorched if moved too suddenly from shade into sun.
It is propagated from cuttings.
