Quick Overview:

This brazen perennial demands attention during the summer with its cheery and bright yellow color. 1-1½” wide, lemon yellow flowers have deep maroon, nearly black centers. The flowers will cover the gray-green, threadleaf foliage for a showy midsummer display.

Description

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks can be tedious for a large planting, but does tend to encourage additional bloom. Plants may be sheared in mid to late summer to promote a fall rebloom and to remove any sprawling or unkempt foliage.
