Does the plant die after it stops blooming forthe season, or does it come back again?
Christy L on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a perennial - it blooms from June to October, and then goes dormant after the first hard frost. Next spring, it will come back and give you pretty flowers once again. You can even divide the plants after a few years.
What exactly is loamy soil! I live close to a marsh How do I supplement the soil?
Elaine G on Nov 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Loam is soil made with a balance of the three main types of soil: sand, silt, and clay soil. As a general rule, loam soil should consist of equal parts of all three soil types. This combination of soil types creates the perfect soil texture for plant growth.
The best way to improve soil texture is by adding organic material, such as compost or peat moss. Decaying organic matter helps sandy soil by retaining water that would otherwise drain away. And it corrects clay soil by making it looser, so air, water, and roots all can penetrate.

Do I need too plant seeds now or actual plants. It???s already November 1here in fernandina beach ?
Elaine G on Nov 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Typically you would plants a plant or tree at this time of the season here are some guidelines to follow for planting. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
