Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil.
Light: Full sun, but will tolerate light shade in the South.
Water: Best performance occurs with consistent, regular moisture with sharp soil drainage (particularly in winter).
Spacing: 12 inches
Fertilizing: Feed with a general purpose slow release fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
Winterizing: If not cut back in summer, prune down to basal growth in late autumn.
Maintenance & Pruning: To keep tidy plants, shear back by 1/2 after flowering. This plant can be easily propagated by dividing clumps in spring.
