Soil: Easily grown in any soil; readily tolerates wet soils. Soil pH not crucial.
Light: Full sun to partial shade
Water: Average to abundant, depending on weather. Established plants can tolerate dry conditions.
Spacing: Space at least 18-24" from other plants; good air circulation encourages healthy, vigorous growth.
Fertilizing: Little needed. If desired, apply a granular garden fertilizer in early spring, just as the soil begins to thaw.
Winterizing: No special care needed. Any old stems that persist after winter can be cut back in spring.
Maintenance & pruning: Remove spent blooms for better performance and looks. While not imperative, it results in a neater, showier plant.
