Planting Instructions: Choose a location in full sun to partial shade with well-drained soil (best flowering occurs in full sun). Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. During the first growing season, water deeply to establish a strong root system. Water weekly or more often in extreme heat or in containers. Once established, this plant with tolerate brief periods of drought. In the spring, apply fertilizer before new growth begins. After flowering, prune to promote new growth and shape the plant. In areas with colder climates, mulch the first winter and remove the following spring.
