Planting & Care

1. Planting: This plant flourishes in an environment with full sun exposure for at least 6-8 hours each day. It requires moist and well-drained soil and can be grown in containers, flower beds, and other areas that receive sufficient sunlight. However, be mindful that the plant may self-seed if not controlled, so it's important to place it carefully. It also thrives in mass plantings or groups.

2. Watering: To ensure your plants remain healthy, it's important to water them regularly. In general, watering your plants once a week is sufficient, but during hotter weather, you may need to water them more frequently to prevent them from drying out. Keep an eye on the soil moisture levels and adjust your watering routine accordingly. It's also important to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot and other issues.

3. Pruning: To promote flowering, it's important to regularly remove the dead heads of plants.
