Able to handle many soil types and look best when planted in multiples. Select a sunny position and space at about 40cm intervals.
These drought tolerant plants rarely need supplementary watering above that of natural rainfall. Of course, all plants need water, so it’s a good idea to water the plants as they are budding up, plus, in the heat of mid-summer.
Feed them with a small amount of a general purpose controlled release fertiliser in spring and autumn.
Occasionally remove spent flower heads if desired and that about all you need to worry about. Summer is a good time to do this.
