Homeowner Growing Tips: Easy to grow in average to rich, well-drained soil. Do not grow in heavy or soggy soil. Light shade will prolong the flowering time, but they can tolerate sun as well.
In the fall, cut plants back to their basal foliage. In spring, remove only the dead leaves. Do not divide.
