The seeds germinate easily and are best sown in flats in the spring and then transplanted out once they are big enough.

This is a very easy to grow, reliable plant in the garden. The foliage will die back in the fall at which time the plants can be cut back. The flower spikes can be removed after flowering. Does not self-seed to my knowledge.
