Provide well-drained soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch to conserve moisture. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Feed regularly beginning in spring. Avoid hard pruning; previous year stems produce early double blooms. Clip stems by one-third after first flush to promote repeat bloom.
