Watering Notes Drought tolerant, but bloom best with supplemental watering if less than 1" of rainfall per week. Overwatering in poorly drained soils will damage roots. Hold back on watering to allow the plants to dry out.
Fertilize Notes Usually no fertilizer is needed but a slow-release can be used.
Prune Notes No pruning needed. Finches come to heads if you leave them uncut until late summer cleanup.
