Provide enriched, well-drained soil with neutral pH. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, water deeply and less frequently. May take 2-3 years to become settled and bloom heavily. Mulch to keep roots cool and conserve moisture. Clip spent flowers. Prune only as needed to shape.
