Description

One of the longest cut flower and container plants you can grow, which thrives in sun and dappled shade. I love this planted and picked to arrange with purples, blues and greens. It literally glows.

Care Tips

Prefers a sunny spot with fertile, moist but well-drained soil. Water regularly until established. Pick or deadhead to encourage more blooms.
