CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • After flowering, the stalk will quickly brown and die off but don't be in a hurry to cut it down until the autumn to allow the seeds to disperse.
  • If your plants are shy to bloom, try a high potash feed, and if in pots, move to a larger pot. Also keep well-watered through the summer of their first year to promote flowers in the second year.

Care Guide

  • Grow pride of Madeira in full sun in soil that is poor to moderately fertile and well-drained - highly fertile soil may reduce flowering.
  • Established plants are tolerant of drought, wind and salt so make ideal coastal plants - although in times of drought, they do appreciate extra water.
  • Protect from hard frosts, especially in spring when the flower spikes are beginning to develop.
  • Hardy to -5C when kept dry, you will still need to provide winter protection to avoid frost damage to leaves.
  • Tall flower spikes may need additional support.
  • Touching the foliage may cause a skin irritation, so wear gloves when pruning or handling.
