Soil: Best grown in moist, fertile, organically rich soils. Tolerant of both acid to akaline soils. Will struggle in dry or drought conditions, particularly in sunny locations
Light: Full sun to part shade. It prefers part shade in the warmer, southern part of its growing range. Plants will be smaller and require more water in sunnier spots than shadier ones.
Water: Medium to wet. Foliage decline can occur rapidly if soils are permitted to dry out.
Spacing: Plant 3-4 ft apart
Fertilizing: None required; if desired, apply a granular garden fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: Stems of the plants should be cut back to the ground in the autumn.
Maintenance & pruning: Removing faded flower stalks will not prolong bloom. Pruning is not necessary, except to remove damaged or unattractive foliage.
