    Care Information
    Prefers enriched, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed before spring growth begins. Clip old flower spikes to promote repeat bloom. May be divided in spring or fall; best if left undisturbed. Mulch to protect crowns in coldest zones.
