Thrives in well-drained, sandy loams but tolerant of clay. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. Remove spent bloom spikes. Fertilizer sparingly and prune away old, unsightly foliage before new growth begins in early spring.
