Care: In mild areas, grow in well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered position. Otherwise grow in a container and position in full sun. Water during the growing season and liquid feed monthly from spring to flowering. Overwinter the whole container in a cold greenhouse. Propagate by division every three to four years in spring. No need to cut down in the autumn, as the seedheads look attractive over winter.
