planted 5 of them this early spring, keep dead headed and blooms very well. seems to like moist, average soil as well as partly shady, receives late afternoon to evening sunshine. These plants are non invasive, and have yet to see the NE Ohio winter. no sign of diseases or pests. growns about 5-6 inch tall or so.. would make a great boarder plant or mass plantings. Responds well to fertilizer.. Miracle Gro ..
