Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, or in partial shade in hot climates. Monardella prefers well-drained soil, and resents excess winter moisture. Best in a raised bed, rock garden, slope, or tucked into a retaining wall. Can be grown in a hanging basket or other container, using a well-draining mix, such as cactus soil. Avoid sites with cold, dry winds. Provide occasional watering through the summer. May be divided in spring, if necessary.
