Ed's Special Advice

Likes full sun or part sun and shade. Provide well-drained soil and keep moderately moist throughout growing season. Excellent in groups or mass plantings. Harvest cut flowers and remove any spent flowers to help ensure blooming throughout the summer. Rotate planting site yearly to prevent plant diseases.
