Among the earliest of native plants to be brought into cultivation, there are now numerous selected forms as well as many intergeneric hybrids. There are about 50 cultivars and hybrids offering a range of single or double flowers, flower colour and size, and overall size. All are fast growing, need plenty of sun and have fine, dark green foliage and terminal clusters of flowers over an extensive period. Flowers are long lasting when cut. Prune after flowering to pencil thickness wood. Most are damaged by severe frost.
