Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)
Water: average to low soil moisture. Avoid moist or wet soils, which can lead to weak growth and rot.

Winterizing: No special winter requirements; dry conditions in winter are preferred.
Maintenance & pruning: Plant can be cut back after its first early summer bloom for a flush of fresh growth as with other yarrow. However, this is not strictly necessary, as this improved selection continues to bloom without the customary trim.
