Frost tender (min 10-13 C), but best at min 16 C. Needs partial shade and humus-rich, well drained soil. Stem tips may be removed in growing season to promote branching of young plants. Feed monthly in summer and water freely.
Water containerized plants freely when in full growth, much less at other times and in low temperatures. Prune to shape in winter.
Propagate by softwood, greenwood or semi-ripe cuttings in summer.
