To a few caulis lovers, this may be news, but caulis are of the mint family, sadly not a tasty part of the mint family.
Most variants love the sun, to near all growing well in part sun and usually with the sun loving variants, they go a little pale with out adequate sunlight.
They hate wet feet, as in too much wet soil for prolonged periods of time, this is a bacterial thing that affects them, also they do not like to be cut, they are supposed to be snapped!
These plants are segmented, meaning the trunk of them is hollow, then sealed, then hollow, and so on.
So when taking cuttings or trimming them back, snap them off where you want them cut, do not cut with scissors or anything else!
In each segmented section, if cut, these will hold water, then a bacterial infection sets in and the plant is infected and most likely will die.

Some examples of the colour easily added to your garden.
