Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Easy to grow perennial needing a well-drained, sandy soil. Divide in the spring. Deadheading will stimulate new flower buds,  extending the bloom time into the summer. A second set of blooms may appear in late summer when cooler temperatures occur. Generally pest and disease free. Suitable for rock gardens, borders, rooftops and walkways.
