Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Grows best with medium moisture in a sandy, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Drought-tolerant when established. In soils too rich, Centranthus may become leggy and require staking. Prune spent flowers to maintain shape, extend bloom time and prevent self-seeding.
