Care Information
Prefers well-drained loamy soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Drought tolerant once established. In USDA Zone 5, will re-sprout from the ground in spring; in warmer areas, cut back close the ground annually to keep neat, compact form. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
