Care Guide

  • Water Needs: Water the plant deeply once a week.
  • In-Season Pruning: Deadhead the flowers regularly to encourage the plant to continue blooming. Cut back the plant when the foliage starts to yellow or look untidy.
  • End-of-Season Pruning: Cut the plant back to the ground after it has died back naturally in mid to late summer.
