    Pedoclimatic needs

    Grow in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil, in sun or partial shade, protected from cold winds. This species is native to the Andes and grows at an average altitude between 1500-2500 meters above sea level. These areas are characterized by cool and humid climates with temperatures between 15°-25°. This species is not rustic and in winter it resists up to +3°/+5°c. It can be grown in the ground in gardens with temperate climates where temperatures do not fall below freezing. It does not tolerate the torrid and dry Mediterranean summers where it must be planted in positions more sheltered from the heat and must be watered regularly.
