Tips from the pros: Plant in spring so roots can get fully established by fall. Deadhead consistently the first season to promote growth from the crown, creating a stronger plant. Good drainage essential - does not like soggy winter conditions. Provide additional mulch protection in winter. Wait to cut back in spring when new growth is visible.
