Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. 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. Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained, alkaline soils in full sun. Well-drained soils are required, particularly in winter. Root rot commonly attacks plants grown in poorly drained soils. Plants prefer 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. To combat high humidity, consider using rock instead of organic mulch.

Pests or Diseases: Susceptible to leaf spot and root rot
