Fairly soil adaptable as long as it is well drained. Not as cold hardy as Afghan Pine, but otherwise well adapted to arid conditions.

A Special Note about Cool Season Annuals
Cool season annuals typically are planted in the fall or early winter and flower in early spring under moderate temperatures. This group of plant materials includes: pansies,
snapdragons, violas, dianthus, flowering cabbage/kale, etc. Because cool season annuals flower in the spring when conditions are mild, most have limited heat tolerance.
As a result cool season annuals do not receive a high Earth–Kind® index despite their outstanding landscape qualities.
