Soil

Good drainage is essential. The combination of wet soil and cold temperatures is particularly detrimental.

Pruning

Prune only after new growth emerges in spring. Cut back to just above a set of large, healthy buds.

Uses

The medium size and refined habit of 'Miss Violet' makes it well suited to mixed borders and perennial gardens, as well as butterfly and humminbird gardens. It can be incorporated into foundation plantings, but is best combined with other plants to ensure interest in winter and spring.

Growing Tips

Plant in full sun for best flowering. Deadheading not required for continuous bloom. In clay soils, plant a bit higher than ground level to divert moisture away from the center of the plant.
