Excellent plant for both the flower border and mixed containers. Continuous flowers through the season. Very dependable bloomer. Good cut flower.
Full sun in slightly fertile, moist, well-drained soil. A light pinch at planting time results in well-branched plants.
June - October
Additional pests and problems that may affect this plant:
Powdery mildew, overfertilizing
Don't overfertilize as that results in lots of leaves, few flowers and weak stems. If plants get tall, cut them back. They will tolerate damp, moist areas.
