    Care Information
    Thrives in average, fast draining soils with consistent moisture; avoid overly wet winter conditions. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Clip spent flower stems for a neat appearance. Can be cut back to basal growth after flowering, and divided every 2 to 3 years, in early spring.
