Provide average, well-drained soil. Mulch to protect in harsh winters. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; will adapt to drier soils. Clip spent flowers to promote continued bloom. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.
