Provide average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed in early spring and after flowering. Blooms best when undisturbed, but may be divided when overcrowded. In cold regions overwinter container plants indoors; cover outdoor plants with straw for protection.
