I have had this plant for ten years, and divided it many times to give to other people. It is great plant, very easy to grow, but it gets aphids if you are not careful. It does not get fungal diseases.

It blooms for a very long time and if you cut dead head, it may bloom twice in one season. It likes average, well drained soil. I cut it back at the end of the blooming season to remove the dead wood. It is woody at the base. You can trim it way back with no ill effects. It is reported to be hardy to 20F.
