Performs best in well-drained soil with regular water, allowing soil to dry out slightly between watering. Clip faded flower stems. May be lightly trimmed mid season to rejuvenate and promote continued bloom. Feed twice monthly. Treat as an annual in cooler climates, or grow in pots and move indoors before danger of frost.
