Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-drained soils. Good soil drainage is essential. Wet soils in winter can be fatal.
Light: Does well in full sun. Tolerates some light shade, particularly in hot summer climates or when plants are being grown in dry soils.
Water: Dry to medium -- Water regularly until established
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Spring application of a timed release, or organic fertilizer
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: Remove spent flower heads, and trim back stems to about 12" after flowering to encourage rebloom. Center of clumps will weaken, so divide clumps as needed (every 2-3 years) to maintain vigor.
