Prefers full sun, but can take a little shade. Can be grown in containers, too. The ones I've seen have more of a pinkish cast to them and turns to more of a whitish/light pink at the base of the petals.

Best look obtained from planting in groups of 5 or more. The fringed edges are gorgeous with a look of frayed fabric. Great for cut flowers.
