Care instructions

Grow in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage flowers to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid spring, train this to fill any gaps.
