    Care Information
    Best with moist, well-drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. In colder regions, protect in winter with a layer of mulch. For a neat appearance, remove old flower stalks. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
