USDA Zones 3–10 are winter hardy for this short-lived perennial. Easily grown in full sun in average, medium, well-drained soils. Prefers wet, organically rich, well-draining soils, but can tolerate some dry conditions. However, in heavy clay Missouri soils, it performs poorly. Seeds of several hybrid cultivars can be grown. If flowers are not deadheaded, plant hybrids will self-seed in ideal growing conditions.
