Yes, this will do well whether you have poor, average or fertile soil! Acidic pH of <7.0 is best. Keep in mind that this prefers to have moist, yet well draining soil. Consistent watering produces bigger and better flowers. The first winter after planting, this perennial benefits from being heavily mulched to protect the roots as they establish.
Pruning can be done once a year in spring prior to new growth budding through. The stems are woody and will require use of a saw or heavy duty pruning loppers. When this is pruned before the new growth appears, it will take off with an astounding growth rate and produce healthy foliage and beautiful flowers.

Reaching up to 54” wide, spacing is recommended to be 48”-54” on center. If you want this to be a focal point, plant it in its own bed and surround it with smaller plants to accentuate the size. You can achieve the focal point aspect by keeping the surrounding plants at least 48” from the center of this perennial. With border planting and general landscaping, it is best to keep the plants spaced at 54” from the center of each surrounding plant to allow plenty of room for new growth.
