It flowers best when planted in full sun. However, we have grown it in part sun and shade, with excellent results. I tried it in a mixed hanging basket, but because of its robust growth habit it seemed to take over the entire basket. SOIL PREPARATION FOR PLANTING
No special soil requirements are needed. However, the plants will grow and flower best when some organic humus is added to the existing soil. add compost (if available), peat moss or processed manure, mixing it thoroughly with the existing planting soil. PLANTING
New greenhouse grown plants should not be planted until after all danger of frost has passed. Set the plants so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Avoid mulching the plants with bark, sawdust or peat moss. After planting, water-in thoroughly and be sure the plants do not settle deeper into the planting soil.
Since these are fast growing, prolific flowering plants they will benefit from monthly feeding during the summer growing season. Use an all-purpose liquid plant food, applying it at the amount recommended on the label. Apply the fertilizer during the morning hours. On a hot day, the fertilizer should be spread on the soil around the plant. On a cool day, it can be applied as a foliage feed. PRUNING & PINCHING
Compact bushy growth habit. However, if the plant tends to get a little spindly, do not hesitate to pinch-back any leggy growth to encourage bushiness. This plant does not like to be severely pruned especially plants that have survived the winter. Lightly shear or pinch those plants to stimulate side branching and a bushier growth habit.
As the plants grow they will continue to flower on the new tip growth, so the dead flowers do not need to be removed. Should the dead flowers become unsightly for any reason, simply pinch-them-off. WATERING
When possible keep sprinkler water off the foliage, particularity in the late afternoon or early evening. Mildew can become a problem if the plants are kept too wet, or are situated in a spot with poor air circulation.
