A relatively low maintenance plant that will need pruning once a year after flowering, cut back the flowering shoots to the first good pair of buds once the flowers have faded. This will promote summer growth and ensure a strong flowering season the following year. Plant in a good sunny spot incorporating some well rotted compost and stake firmly until well established.
