Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best flowering in full sun. Drought tolerant once established. Somewhat evergreen in the South, but generally deciduous in colder climates. Blooms on new wood, so prune as needed (e.g., remove stems lost to winter and, if desired, thin to the ground up to 1/3 of old stems) in late winter to early spring.
