Comments: Prefers rich, moist, woodsy soil for best growth and should be kept well watered during the growing season. Will not grow in the deep South as it does not like high humidity and temperatures. Cut plants back after flowering to remove mature flower heads thus removing unwanted seeds that will multiply this plant in the garden.
