An excellent specimen plant for a sunny border protected from cold and early morning sun.

Garden care: Deadhead after flowering. In early spring apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch with well-rotted compost or manure. Fungal diseases may occur in cool wet springs so prune out any affected parts and spray the remaining sections with fungicide.
