Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Although it is often seen growing in the wild in moist soils, with tolerance for periodic flooding, it performs quite well in cultivation in average garden soils. Plants generally grow taller in moist soils. Overall plant height may be reduced by cutting back stems in late spring. Remove flower heads before seed develops to avoid any unwanted self-seeding.
