Description

Winter hardy to USDA Zones 8-10. It prefers organically rich loams. If grown in too much shade, plant stems tend to elongate and fall over. Plant height can be reduced by cutting back stems in late spring. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage additional bloom. Plants grown in protected locations with winter mulch may survive mild winters in USDA Zones 6-7.
