Care Instructions

Easy in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in sun or light shade. It will self-seed around lightly but any excess seedlings are easy to remove. It is better if you don’t cut it back in spring, simply tease out dead foliage by gently running your fingers through it as if it were hair.
