• Winter hardy to USDA Zones 3-8 where it is best grown in humusy, organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade.
  • Performs well in rocky soils. Avoid heavy clay soils.
  • Best in full sun in cool northern climates, but prefers some part afternoon shade in hot southern climates.
  • In the St. Louis area, best foliage color typically occurs in sunny spots with part afternoon shade.
  • If grown in full sun, consistent moisture is particularly important.
  • Scorch and general foliage decline often occur if soils are allowed to dry out.
  • Foliage is essentially evergreen in warm winter climates, but the amount of retained foliage color in cold winter climates such as St. Louis depends in large part upon the severity of the temperatures.
  • In cold winter climates, a winter mulch applied after the ground freezes will help prevent root heaving.
  • Divide clumps in spring every 3-4 years. Remove stems of faded flowers to encourage additional bloom.
  • Straight species plants may be grown from seed.
