In full sun, it grows well in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Best cultivated in nutrient-poor, loose, dusty, gritty, or rocky soils with good drainage. Drought tolerance. It doesn't like moist to wet soils where rot can emerge. In mild winters, plants remain evergreen. To maintain plant appearance, monitor growth/spread, or restrict unsightly woody stem growth, cut back stems as required.
