Comments: Easy to grow and rewarding with abundant flowers in fall and winter. They may be used as specimens, espaliers, and screening. They make excellent container plants. Grows well in full sunlight and partial shade, but needs a porous, well drained soil for best performance. Very easy to grow, but tea scale can be a problem on some plants, especially those growing under stressful conditions.
