Thrives in average to very lean, well-drained soil. Takes light shade, particularly in hot southern climates. Water regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established in landscape. Take care not to overwater. As groundcover, space plants 12 to 15 in. apart, closer for faster fill. Fertilize sparingly.
