Soil: Not finicky about soil. Grows well in dry conditions, but flowers and spreads more vigorously if it gets some moisture.
Light: Part shade to full shade. Foliage may depreciate considerably in hot summer weather, and may scorch if grown in too much sun. Although plants tolerate light morning sun, they need afternoon shade.
Water: Medium - tolerates quite dry conditions once established, though it may start to look poorly in very hot, dry conditions.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: No special requirements. Apply a granular garden fertilizer in early spring if desired
Winterizing: Dies back in winter. Remove damaged or dead foliage in early spring to make way for fresh spring growth.
Maintenance & pruning: Evergreen in mild winter regions. Divide plants in fall if they become too crowded.
