CARE
Care Thrives in lean, fast-draining soils. Water regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established in landscape. Take care not to overwater. Remove older rosettes as they decline to allow the younger rosettes to fill in. Foliage coloration may fluctuate seasonally. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
