like watering, and so forth

On plant Duranta repens



Its frost sensitive, so won't tolerate temperatures less than 10 degrees C. My book says to cut back by half in spring, but it might be a bit late to do that now. Also needs lots of watering, specially if it's in a pot, and the book also says it's prone to whitefly attack. Good luck with it
