'Soft Whisper' performs best in medium-moisture, slightly acidic, well-drained loam in full sun. Water deeply and regularly, preferably in the morning, and avoid overhead watering. Make sure the plant has good air circulation, as this promotes vigorous and healthy growth and helps prevent disease. A layer of mulch during the summer months helps to retain moisture, keep roots cool, and discourage the growth of weeds. Zones 5-10.
