Plant in full sun in well-drained to dry soil. It does not tolerate wet soils. Drought tolerant. The bright, bubble-gum pink flower heads are quite large and are a real standout in the garden. Cut back if appearance gets shaggy, and new growth will emerge, or wait to cut back until spring. Do not cut back in fall as the flower heads hold through winter and create an attractive winter effect. A great companion to asters, miscanthus, and rudbeckia, and a good container plant.
