Lance-leaved Tickseed Growing and Maintenance Tips

Grows best in a medium to dry, well-drained soil, in full sun. Establishes well in rocky soil and is tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prune plants mid to late summer to promote continuous blooming into the fall and to maintain shape. In good locations, this plant may self-seed.
