Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, in average to well-drained or sandy soils; do not crowd. Amend the soil with compost before planting; in heavy soils, plant on a slight mound. If you fertilize, dilute to half-strength or plants may get floppy. Deadhead after each flush of blooms to encourage even more flowers. Cut back by half toward the end of summer; apply compost and mulch around the crown in autumn. Cut to ground in early spring. Divide every 2-3 years in spring or early autumn, if needed.
