More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
Soil: Plant in any well-drained spot. Can take some dryness, but blooms last longest if it does not dry out in spring
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day) is best; part shade (4-6 hrs/day) is okay, especially in warmer areas
Space: Min. 2' apart
Fertilizing: Little fertilizer is needed.
Winterizing: No special treatment is required; 2-3" of mulch is recommended
Maintenance: Blooms on old wood, which means that any pruning should be done after bloom. If plants become thin and scraggly, cut back to just a few inches high after bloom for a flush of lush new growth.
