    Care Information
    Grows easily in average, well-drained soil; thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Remove spent blooms to encourage prolific bloom and prevent unwanted self-seeding. Fertilize in early spring.
