  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide lean, porous, well-drained in a sunny site; protect from intense afternoon sun very hot summer regions. Indoors, provide bright light. Water regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Rejuvenate every 3 to 4 years in early spring by re-rooting rosettes.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

While romance is most often about flowering favorites such as roses, don't think those of us who live where water restrictions limit our plant choices can't have swoon-worthy gardens, too!...
