It likes hot and dry and lots of sun. I grow mine in terra cotta planters on my south facing steps. I water them about once a week. They REALLY can stand to be completely dry.

Love your pond Greg! Any problems with raccoons or bears? Raccoons are my biggest problem.
I forgot to put in my poppies and pond picture. Giggle

Those are poppies and they came up on their own. I was so suprised to see them, sure hope something similar grows this year. GRIN
