Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, preferably, or with partial shade in southern locations. Provide moist, well-drained, moderately fertile soil; amend with compost before planting. Reasonably drought tolerant once established, though blooms best with regular watering. Removing faded flowers helps to encourage repeat blooming, or you can simply cut the whole plant back hard after flowering is complete. In spring, cut back to 3" high & apply a balanced granular fertilizer.
