    Care Instructions

    Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Occasional watering may be required for dry inland regions, WA and SA. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended, but can tolerate mulches with fines).

    If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Every 3-7 years cut back 30cm above the ground (looks better pruned every 3 years, depends on desired look).
