Provide moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Water regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, tolerates drought but blooms best with regular moisture. Prune back in mid- to late summer to encourage a new flush of blooms. Remove old foliage before new leaves emerge in spring.
