    Care Information
    Provide a lightly shaded site in moist but well-drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. In containers, check often to maintain moist conditions. Shear lightly occasionally to shape and feed with a general purpose fertilizer to encourage blooms. May be used as an annual in cooler climates.
