- All varieties are deciduous and frost hardy.
- They grow best in a rich, well drained soil but sometimes perform well in less than ideal conditions.
- Often grown as a spring flowering pot plant and they are excellent plants for patio containers.
- Flower colour is influenced by the acidity of the soil - acid soils tend to make the flowers blue whilst alkaline conditions result in pink and red flowers.
