The Glorybower has a shrub- like development. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Glorybower Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a pink colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
The Glorybower should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. The Glorybower should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves.
During this period of the year the The Glorybower needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let’s irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 1-2 buckets of water . If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
These plants are planted in a soft, but quite heavy, and not excessively drained soil.
