Thrives in rich, moist soils, but highly adaptable. Best foliage and plumes in full sun; benefits from part shade in hottest summer climates. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; tolerates dry spells when established. Cut to the ground in late winter just before new shoots appear.
