Very similar to Indian Blanket, only smaller. Needs full sun to produce compact growth. Will become spindly in too much shade. Keep cutting off spent flowers to produce more flowers and to keep plant compact. Long bloom period. Cut back 1/4 to 1/2 of plant when flower production slows. I leave last blooms on at end of summer for winter interest/bird food.
