Plant Type: Perennials

Rich clear yellow blooms, whose tubular petals have a spoon-shaped end, engulf the dense foliage creating a neat dome of color for more than a month. Bred by the University of Minnesota to withstand very cold winter temperatures. Superb for borders, edging, large containers or mass plantings.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
