i agree with kim, it definitely requires watering at least every other day here in zone 8 and since it's been in the high 90's the last 2 weeks here, i've been watering it every day early in the a.m. BUT , it is WELL worth the extra effort in my book. i started mine from seed in april and it's well over 6' tall now ( and almost 6' wide).

it's a great 'centerpiece' in my "island" bed. the colors, textures and overall structure are an asset to any garden. 2 thumbs up from this Daver's junkie !

Very Large, Nice looking plant. It seems to require more water then listed. If in Full sun I would say it requires consistenly moist soil. Also it needs at least 2 feet of space.
