For me this has thrived on neglect. I have moved it, and not only did what I move survive, every bit of root that I left grew back. I never water it, and even in severe drought, it never looked worse for it. Where I have it now is in one of the worst areas of the yard with unimproved clay and a fair amount of shade, and it is still going.

It is fun to watch the gold finches go to it and eat. They blend in so well that you really have to look to see them. They love it!
