Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Grow best in an average to moist, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. Quite drought tolerant once established and very adaptable to heat and poor soils. Taller cultivars may grow leggy and require staking if grown in dense shade. Regular deadheading is recommended, but not necessary, to increase bloom time, however, it will improve the general appearance of the plant. Direct sunlight exposure helps develop proper, flower pigmentation.
