Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates wide range of soils. Thrives on sandy soils in full sun. Evergreen in warm winter climates, but probably should be cut back in early spring. Usually dies to the ground in cold winter climates. Not reliably winter hardy in USDA Zone 5, however, and plant should be grown therein in a protected location with a winter mulch.
