Description

Like a mini sunflower, but with ten times the flowers, and it keeps blooming right through summer and autumn. I love this in hand-tied bunches, the gold perfectly lighting up dark crimson dahlias and cosmos. And the great thing is, as a perennial, this comes back year after year.

Care Tips

Grow in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil in full sun. May need support. To encourage more blooms and a shorter height, trim 1/3 of the plant in mid-May.
