Care & Size Guidance
Although slightly more tender than the species it has a compact growth habit compared to the species, so more amenable to long term pot culture.
Near the end of its life, the plant sends up a tall, branched stalk, laden with yellow blossoms, that may reach a total height up to 8–9 m. After flowering, the plant dies, however it produces many side shoots that will continue to grow.
Water sparingly in spring and summer and keep dry in winter.
