    Care Information
    Thrives in average, moist but fast draining soils; avoid overly wet winter conditions. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Clip spent flower stems for a neat appearance. May be cut back to basal growth after flowering, and divided every 2 -3 years, in early spring.
