Temperatures Hippocrepis balearica
We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day. The Hippocrepis balearica can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Irrigation Hippocrepis balearica
The Hippocrepis balearica needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 2-3 glasses of water . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
