Tolerates average to poor soil but needs good drainage or may develop root rot. Powdery mildew may also develop with poor air circulation and moist conditions.
Bees and butterflies love this plant but the deer pass it by.
No significant pests but may develop powdery mildew if located in to much shade & poor air circulation. Cut back after bloom to encourage repeat blooms. Divide clumps in late winter when they become overcrowded.
