- Position: partial shade
- Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: fast-growing
- Flowering period: March
- Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)
A wonderfully exotic looking shrub with dark green, almost black, lance-shaped leaves, which provide the perfect backdrop for for its unusual, cone-shaped, flowers. A Mexican petunia, 'Asam' will add a touch of drama to the mixed border or patio.
- Garden care: Remove dead, diseased or misplaced branches in late winter or early spring. Offer winter protection in cold or exposed positions and avoid overwatering during the colder months.
