Plant Type: Perennials

Crisp greenish blooms for St. Patrick's Day. Buds are dark green, open blooms chartreuse to light lime or yellow! Light yellow falls, awash with pale green, sport darker green undersides that show brilliantly in bud. Mid- to late season. The distinctive form and watercolor tones of this easy perennial dapple the late spring to early summer landscape. Plant in mass in the border, on the blazing patio, along a sun-soaked wall — anywhere you want ever-increasing drifts of radiant color! Healthy, drought-tolerant, top-size rhizomes may take a season to establish. (Compare to a clear yellow and it really is green!)
