Design IdeasPlant in classical urns or terra cotta pots. Gang them in window boxes and trough planters. Equally happy in the garden where its versatility fits a variety of garden styles. Takes on a traditional cottage garden character when integrated into perennial borders. Tolerance of drier conditions puts it in with Mediterranean herb compositions and among California natives. A valuable source of flower color in tropical gardens too heavy on foliage plants. Spot into foundation plantings at high traffic areas to appreciate the stellar flowers. A perfect cutting garden candidate.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Blooms best when old stems are plucked. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
