Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soil. Prefers loose loam.
Light: Full Sun
Water: Average needs. Tolerates some drought. Intolerant of wet, poorly-drained soils.
Spacing: 1.50 to 2.50 feet
Fertilizing: Light mulching is all that is necessary. Too much fertilizer will encourage more greenery, and less bloom.
Winterizing: Stems will often die to the ground in the cold winters of Zones 5 and 6, with roots surviving to push up new stems in spring.
Maintenance & Pruning: Many gardeners in Zones 5 and 6 simply assume stems will be damaged in winter and automatically prune back hard all stems each year in early spring. Moreover, even in warm winter climates where the stems usually survive winter, gardeners still frequently prune the plants back hard in early spring to promote vigorous new stem growth. Flowering is unaffected by spring pruning because plants bloom on new growth.
