This plant prefers dry to intermediate sites in any altitude range from sea level. Delicately fragrant in the evening, blooms May to November at 3-5 years old in any well drained soil with full light. Watch red spider mites and borers. Propagation by seeds from seed cases that have turned brown, also by cuttings and layering. Good branching.
