  • Maintenance: Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new growth and prevent self-seeding
  • Pruning: In season, pinch back the tips of new growth to encourage branching and denser growth. After blooming, cut back any leggy or overgrown stems to promote a more compact habit. Avoid pruning too late in the season, as this can remove next year's flower buds
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring, before new growth emerges
