Does best in moist well-draining soil in the full sun. Tolerates light shade, more so in the hotter zones. After the threat of frost has passed, sow seeds directly in the ground 3/4” to 1” apart with 2’ between rows. Keep moist until germination, you can reduce watering to moderate after establishing. Thin to 4-6” apart of only the strongest seedlings. You may start early indoors several weeks before the last expected frost using trays and transplant once the threat of frost has passed. If transplanting from indoors of from a shaded location slowly introduce plants to the full sun over the course of a couple weeks. Can be invasive, check local lists.
