They flower all summer, but need a trim from time to time to encourage full growth. An attractive and drought tolerant garden subject especially for fynbos and coastal gardens, flowers are useful on gifts, greeting cards or in pot pourri. Plant in full sun, water well to establish and feed with organic fertilizer for best results. It occurs naturally on dunes and limestone outcrops and on the lower slopes of mountains from the Western Cape to PE.
