Cultivation

Requires a well-drained soil in full sun[2] with shelter from cold winds[3]. Grows well in poor gravelly soils and on hot dry banks[2]. Grows better in the milder areas of Britain[1]. Prefers very little water in the summer. Established plants are drought resistant[4].

Plants are hardy to about -10°c when growing in a well-drained soil[5]. Plants flower most freely on young wood so any pruning is best done in late spring[5]. The leaves, when bruised, emit an aromatic sage-like perfume[6].

Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus[3].
