Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow spring in situ[200]. An autumn sowing can also be made in areas with mild winters[200]. This sowing will produce larger plants.
A very drought resistant plant once established, it thrives in a poor gravelly soil[200]. Nitrogen-rich soils produce excessive leaf growth at the expense of flowering[200]. Prefers a sunny position[200].
