Best in a sunny location; performs in part shade in hot, inland areas. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. In drought conditions, may go summer-dormant. Cut back hard and feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Trim off spent blooms to encourage reblooming.
