Provide enriched, well-drained soil. After a flowering flush, clip lightly and apply a slow-release fertilizer to promote continued prolific bloom. Tolerates mild drought in a landscape; water potted plants regularly, when top 2 to 3 in. of soil is dry. Where hardy, cut back by one-third and fertilize in early spring.
