  • Tolerates some drought.
  • Intolerant of wet, poorly-drained soils.
  • Roots are winter hardy to USDA Zone 5, but top growth is only reliably winter hardy to USDA Zone 7.
  • Thus, stems will often die to the ground in the cold winters of Zones 5 and 6, with roots surviving to push up new stems in spring.

Special Feature:
Perennial borders. Shrub borders. Very effective in large groups or massed. Also effective as a low hedge. Valued for its late summer to fall flowers when few other shrubs are in bloom.
Ornamental use:
  • The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

No serious insect or disease problems. Crowns may rot in wet, poorly-drained soils.
