This plant is cold hardy to at least zone 4 as well as heat and drought tolerant. It needs a sunny location but also needs protecting from scorching afternoon sun. It likes very fast draining soil and to be on the dry side between waterings.

The plant changes coloration depending on seasonal factors with cold weather bringing a very lovely darker red/maroon color to the leaves. Color changes are affected by a combination of factors--maturity, air and soil temperature, length of daylight and sometimes climate.
