|Care||Grows easily in most average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Space 5 ft. apart as a groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.|
