These are beautiful! I just planted 3 of these in a bed at my house, never had them before, didn’t know anything about them but loved them when I discovered them at my nursery. I did not know how to plant them and assumed some good compost would be helpful. I have them in a bed along the front walkway to my house (facing south). I had been watering them weekly. They are not coming along as I would have expected. I know they are supposed to be hearty. Any recommendations?

First I don't know what zone you live in, and I'm in zone 5a (Iowa) so I don't know if that will make a difference. They prefer less water and are fairly drought tolerant. I moved these from my previous home and have had these for about 15 years! I have split them many times. Sometimes I will cut them back some in late June so they don't get as leggy and they would get more compact. Mine have been absolutely huge! We had a bad drought this summer and I barely watered them. The color has been really deep wine this Fall. I think they actually get better color when they are drier. Hope this helps! Thumbs up Thumbs up P.S. It can take a couple of years to really reach their potential nodding nodding
