General Culture:
Grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in sandy or clay soil. Generally tolerates poor soils and some drought. Pinching is not required due to compact size. Plants do not come true from seed, so consideration should be given to cutting back stems after flowering to prevent self-seeding.
