It's perfect for beds and borders of urban yards or small suburban homesites. Naturally suited to the casual country gardens around porches and steps. Squats nicely adjacent to water gardens and pools. Plant on the sunny verge of woodlands beside the lawn for bright seasonal color.|

|Care||Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune only as needed to shape, immediately after bloom period.|
