Linda, here is a link to the Spuria site. It has cultural information.  

Pick a good spot for them as they don't need to be transplanted as often as TB's.   I understand they can go 10 years between transplanting.  I had 4 or five Spurias years ago and I really liked them.  Last year, the opportunity presented itself and I started over with 10 new ones.  Most bloomed the first year.  They weren't as tall here as I remembered, but beautiful anyway.

They don't require a lot of water. I've read that they shouldn't be watered in the summer, but did in the past and they performed well.
