This variety shows its best bloom in spring, but it blooms off & on all year long. In Florida, this variety seems to be less affected by mites & soil malnutrition.
Tolerates some drought & dry conditions but blooms best when watered regularly. Needs good drainage.
Easy to root from cuttings.
Prefers a slightly acid soil.

I had this beautiful plant when I lived in CA. It was called Razzleberry there. I never could find it here in TX until today. I needed a partial shade plant to put on each side of my garage. It's perfect.
