GROWING TIPS

Grows best in medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun but tolerates light shade. Will freely self-seed in optimum growing conditions. Plants may be sheared back after bloom to avoid any unwanted self-seeding and/or to tidy foliage for remaining part of the growing season. Divide every 2-3 years to keep plantings vigorous.
