Grown for their flowers and for shade.
They are frost tender, min 16-18C and will require full light and fertile, well drained but not dry soil. They will need some shelter from the wind to protect the flowers. Pot-grown plants are unlikely to flower. Pruning, other than shaping while young in autumn, is not needed.
Propagation is by seeds or air-layering in the spring or by semi-ripe cuttings in the summer.
