We find it best in a bit of shade, with plenty of water in rich and well drained soil. Blooming starts late, but continues for us until hard frosts. Of the three varieties we grow, I like the silver leaf SWNS best. Love this one for its great large leaves.

RNG has very large leaves - sometimes 8 inches long. It grows 8 feet plus for us in the ground - 4 feet in large pots.

I've grown it for many years...I am fondest of the native and have found it much hardier than the two more common hybrids. It grows in semi-shade (oaks) and in full sun, poor soil and minimal supplemental watering...in fact no supplemental moisture this year to date. Blooming begins when the heat is most intense (August) and continues until the first hard cold spell, which did not happen last year until after Dec...
