Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-drained soils. Good soil drainage is essential. Wet soils in winter can be fatal. Light: Full sun - 6+ hours/day - is recommended. In hotter climates, some shade during the heat of summer can be beneficial.
Water: Dry to medium -- Water regularly until established.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches.
Fertilizing: None required. If desired, apply a granular garden fertilizer in early spring, once the soil has thawed.
Winterizing: No special care needed. May leave spent blooms on plants over winter for reseeding, and providing interest to birds in the winter garden. Clean up spent foliage in early spring as plants emerge.
Maintenance & pruning: While deadheading isn't necessary, removing spent flower heads will prolong the bloom.
