Tips for Care:

Heat and sun tolerance in USDA growing zones 5-10, these shrubby perennials bloom best in full sun and tolerate partial shade. However, you’ll notice fewer blossoms in less than 6 hours a day of sunlight. Plant in a very well-drained location with moderate water when establishing and during peak summer temperatures. Your Fourth of July can even be cut back to the ground when dormant with no problem and simply regrows anew each spring.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Any Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune When Dormant
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Deer & Rabbit Resistant & Drought Tolerant Once Established
