Quick Overview:

‘Little Goldstar’ is a compact, proportional plant.  Standing just knee high, this plant forms a bushy, short clump of rich green foliage covered with a dome of closely spaced, starburst-shaped, 2-2½”, golden yellow blossoms held just above the foliage. Very well-branched scapes carry loads of flowers from midsummer through early fall.  Over 80 flowers have been counted on a single plant, making this selection more floriferous than ‘Goldsturm’.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates hot and humid summers and some drought. Tolerates light shade, but best in full sun. Deadhead to prolong bloom. Divide when clumps become overcrowded.
