Also known as the Princess flower. Prefers rich fertile soil but it is able to adapt to other soils as well if mulched, fed and periodically watered. Fertilize after each bloom cycle for optimum flowering. Light: Prefers sunny situations but the princess appreciates afternoon shade in areas with high summer temperatures.
Moisture: Likes moisture but not soggy conditions. Will survive short periods of drought.
Hardiness: Freezing temperatures will kill the plant but it will usually resprout with the return of warm weather and recover to bloom in mid to late summer. Propagation: Softwood cuttings and division of clumps.
