    Thrives in lean, well-drained soils. Site away from reflected heat. In zones 5-6, avoid fall planting; best if established before first frost. Drought tolerant once established; looks best if watered periodically during the hot season. Once a mature rosette blooms, it will decline as new suckers below the rosette perpetuate the clump.
