Growth Characteristics:
Compact, dense habit with rose pink to white blooms throughout the summer. Very tolerant of heat, humidity and drought conditions once well established.

Care & Maintenance:
Plant in well drained, average-poor soil. Use for cut-flowers or deadhead to encourage new growth and blooming. Can be trimmed back to the base and allow to fill after first flush of blooms are spent.

* Low Water Requirement:
After this plant is well established, it has a lower than average water requirement. A good layer of mulch will also help reduce water needs.
