Gardeners' Notes:

Positive cloud91977 On Mar 7, 2011, cloud91977 from Spring Valley, CA (Zone 10a) wrote:

Watered twice a month after planting in the fall. By winter the plant began to 'complain' about all the water and was not watered again until the temps began to rise into the 80's every day. Our three y/o plants live on rain water, growing in full sun and clay-loam to which grit has been generously added.

Does not require pampering of any kind. Can be cut back after blooming to keep the plants tidy and encourage more blooms, but they're great looking even when neglected.

Very easy to propagate from cuttings. Stongly-scented leaves make a potent addition to potpourris and bouquets. Hummingbirds visit every day when these are in bloom.
