Planting Advice

This plant needs well drained soil. Consider building a raised garden bed or elevated mounds in large gardens with free draining soil.

Watering needs

Avoid wilting by keeping soil moist, but not wet or soggy. This plant wilts fairly easily if it gets too dry, and recovers quickly when you water it.

Pruning Advice

To rejuvenate older plants and stimulate overall new growth, prune plants back to within 3 or 4 inches of the ground. Do this, when warm weather is expected in early spring if you have cool winters, or in late winter if you have mild and frost free winters.
