|Care||Adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Space 6 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.|
