Not too fickle, this tickseed does well in most soil types and resists drought once established. For best results, plant ‘Enchanted Eve’ in full sun in well-draining soil. To keep the blooms going, deadhead spent blossoms. It has a tidy mounding habit that looks great in the garden, along the front of the border or in containers. This plant is disease, mildew and deer resistant and attracts butterflies.
