Homeowner Growing Tips

Grow in full sun, in neutral to alkaline, well-drained soil. Tolerates shallow, rocky soils & poor fertility. Avoid poorly-drained soils; prefers to dry out between waterings. Divide in spring, if desired. Shear low in spring; shear lightly after flowering; trim back as needed to keep tidy.
