Modest plant, that will grow well in any soil and sunny/mostly sunny location with average moisture. This wild species will perform better in not too amended soil - in rich and too moist soil, it may flop and quickly spread. Better are average soils, clayish, poor, even rocky or shallower or disturbed soils.
