Highly adaptable; grows easily in poor to average soil, provided it is well-drained. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Space 5 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.
