Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Very easy to grow in virtually any location. Best in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Will tolerate sunnier aspects if given ample water. Salt tolerant. Remove faded flowers for best display. Wonderful contrast for an edging, groundcover or border front. Long-lived cut flowers are splendid for summer bouquets.
