Mine was in good, loamy soil, free-draining but very dry in summer. As long as I remembered to water it about once a week, it did really well; it certainly never got fed. It faced north, backed up to a 6-foot fence but got very early and very late sun in mid-summer. I don't know what the soil is like in the Norwegian Fjords but I do know that many were in full sun (and driving rain some days we were there), out in the open and still thriving. The only problem is, if you do get heavy driving rain with wind, the flowers will not lift up again once beaten down - still looks nice though! And thanks, Posy, for the offer of a cutting...unfortunately, Newark to IoW is just a tad too far to drop in for coffee, a garden conversation and a piece of your lovely plant and get home in time to cook dinner!!
