Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Grows best in full sun tolerating many soil types and considered quite drought tolerant. Although it stands up well in the garden, it is advisable to prune  1/3 of the top growth in early summer. This will encourage new foliage and produce numerous, tiny blooms per plant.
