Best grown in organically rich, humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Performs well in full sun in colder climates, but prefers some shade (particularly in the heat of the afternoon) in warmer climates. If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is particularly important. Foliage is essentially evergreen in warm climates, but the amount of retained foliage color in cold winter climates depends in large part upon the severity of the temperatures. Remove stems of faded flowers to encourage additional bloom. In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving. Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years.
