Quick Overview:

Delicate, fern-like leaves produce an airy effect. Multicolored blooms in terracotta orange, and pale yellow that retain their color when cut and dried. Popular for Mediterranean landscapes. Plant in mass, mixed borders, rock gardens and containers. Tolerant of heat and drought. Herbaceous perennial.

Details

Flower heads are peachy yellow when they first bloom, but gradually mature to a coppery bronze. Tiny flowers are densely packed in large, flat-topped, terminal flower clusters (corymbs) which are 2 to 4" across. Green leaves are deeply-cut, fern-like and aromatic when crushed. Good cut or dried flower. Tolerant of heat and humidity, but flower color may fade in extended, hot summer weather. Drought tolerant once established. Long summer bloom period may be prolonged by prompt removal of faded flower heads.
