Hardiness Hardy evergreen perennial (RHS Hardiness H5)
Flowers July to September
Height 30 - 50cm
Spread 25 - 45cm
Conditions  Sun and well drained soil

Sow in autumn on the surface of a tray of seed compost.  Cover in clear plastic and over-winter in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Seedlings emerge in early spring. Or sow anytime.  Keep at 15-18°C. If there is no germination in 3 weeks, place the tray in a fridge for 3 weeks and then back into the warmth for germination.  Do not exclude light which is needed for germination.  Transplant the seedlings into pots and then into the garden after the last frost in a sunny position.

Grow Plants need little care once established.  Trim back plants after flowering, removing the current year’s growth.  Do not cut back too hard into the woody parts of the plant, as stems may not regrow.  Plants are not generally troubled by pests and diseases.  Semi-ripe cuttings take well in summer.
