Hardiness level Red
Large rosettes, up to 30cms of green leaves with slightly frilly edges that go red in the sun. The plant branches freely and the head can become quite top-heavy,. In some summers, it can produce a spike of small creamy flowers above the foliage.
It is not frost hardy so best in a pot so it can be overwintered indoors. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Feed lightly and water in the spring when it begins to grow. A bright spot but not in blazing sun.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
