Notes for Identification:

Tall varieties are more likely to require staking. Pinching or cutting them back several times before late july will reduce their height, increase bushiness, delay flowering, produce more flowers and reduce staking needs. To reduce foliage diseases, thin stems so they are about 1 inch apart. Cutting the outer stems lower than those to the inside of the plant encourages a fuller, more rounded shape. Deadhead or cut plants to the ground after flowering to prevent self-seeding. Self-seeded plants aren't true to parental type. Divide every 1 to 2 years in spring non-aggressive non-invasive native to north america - native to eastern north america special uses: cut flowers - the cut flowers are attractive but short-lived.
