Once the plant is established, it is relatively drought-tolerant and requires minimal watering. However, during prolonged periods of drought, it is advisable to provide supplemental irrigation to ensure the plant’s health and vitality.

To encourage continuous blooming, deadhead the faded flowers regularly. This will not only keep the plant looking tidy but will also promote the production of new blooms.
