Evergreen shrub with a rounded shape up to 0.5 to 1.5m tall. Rough leaves, dark green above, lighter on the underside. They spread a characteristic smell. The flowers at the beginning are yellow to later turn orange and finally red. The three colors coexist reminding those of the Spanish flag which is the common name of this plant in Spain!
Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.
