Added this plant to my garden 2 years ago. Divided and planted last year to sunny as well as almost all shade and does well in both. Seems to survive in dry conditions as well as normal moisture. Responds to deadheading. Have started to give to friends and family this year. Spreads by rhizomes, Very prolific. Beautiful blooms all summer. BEST OF ALL, DEER RESISTANT!!!!
