    An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

    • Picked up one of these in mid May. Looked a bit worn but once I got it home and in a large pot this plant has performed well. Loads of vibrant red flowers and a sturdy build. Like most PW plants this needs minimal care; just water and fertilizer do the trick. Highly recommend.
