One of the great assets that this plant has is that it will generally live for a long time, as long as conditions remain viable. As it grows slowly, it adapts to its environment, helping it to grow firm and strong.

Also, because it flowers so heavily, it is a good attraction for bees and native birds, which is good if you want a full blooming garden.

The accuminata prefers a sunny position with good draining soil. It is known to be relatively tolerant to extended droughts and can also handle frost. Fire however will kill the plant, as it is generally unable to re-grow after big fires.
