Description

Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained, alkaline soil in full sun. Well-drained soils are required, particularly in winter. Root rot commonly attacks plants grown in poorly drained soils. Prefers a light, sandy soil with somewhat low fertility. Remove faded flowers to promote continued bloom. Prune to shape in spring after new leaves appear. Prune back to 8” in spring every 3 years to control plant size and to promote robust, new growth. High summer humidity is not appreciated. To combat high humidity, consider using rock instead of organic mulch.
