    Pedoclimatic needs

    It adapts to sandy and fibrous soil types, preferring well-drained ones. It resists drought well and does not need regular watering. It prefers full sun exposure but also adapts to partial shade where it loses its characteristic compactness. In winter it resists down to -2°/-4°C as long as it is kept dry. It can be grown in the ground in Mediterranean gardens, where temperatures do not fall below freezing. In colder climates it can be grown in pots, placed outdoors during spring and summer and sheltered during autumn and winter. Being a small species with limited development, it is ideal for growing in pots on terraces and balconies. In areas with a mild climate, it can also be grown in small pockets of soil in rock gardens or dry stone walls.
