Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Apply fertilizer in spring and midsummer. Spent flower heads can be removed if desired or allowed to remain for late season interest. Divide every 2 to 3 years, in early spring or fall. They are very easy to grow and will grow and bloom even during the hot summers!
