Care Information
Performs in all soil types, provided it is well drained. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Shear lightly after blooming to encourage fresh foliage and possibly repeat flowering in the autumn. Clumps are easily divided in spring or early fall.
