Fertilization

Water it regularly after planting, but allow the soil to dry in between watering spells once it has established itself.

Should be done immediately after the flowering season.

Apply a complete fertilizer every 6-8 weeks in spring. The plant also benefits from a generous mulch avoiding the stems during that time.
