Grow in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Roots should be kept cool, shaded and uniformly moist. Bloom occurs on the current year's growth. Prune back hard (to approximately 8-12" from the ground) to strong leaf buds in late winter to early spring. Needs an adequate supply of nutrients during the growing season to support rush of growth.
