How to take care of Hot Lips 15 cm
Plant them in any free well-draining soil and place in an open sunny position. For best results dig some organic compost or well-rotted manure into the soil before planting. They flower from mid to late summer.
Stake the taller ones for support. It’s susceptible to and should be protected from slugs and snails. Drought tolerant once established. Also tolerates heat and humidity. Plants may be easily divided in early spring or fall.
Can be clipped back hard after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage.
