Light: Thrives in a spot that gets at least six hours of direct sun exposure. Any less and it won’t flower as much and may be more susceptible to pest and disease pressure.
Soil: Pretty particular about soil. Enjoys growing in neutral or alkaline soils, but won’t do as well in acidic soils. Absolutely needs good drainage, as any sogginess won’t be tolerated.
Water: Has average water needs. After it’s established, water when there are extended periods without precipitation.
Fertilizing: Apply a fertilizer formulated for woody, flowering plants once in the spring.
Pruning: A light trim is recommended just after spring bloom. This will give the plant a tidy appearance and encourage a more abundant rebloom, although it will delay it a bit. Trimming isn’t necessary to get the plant to rebloom.
Other: It makes a fantastic cut flower, bringing lovely fragrance and a cheerful view to any arrangement.
