This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Brilliant, terracotta-orange, single flowers with prominent yellow stamens (4cm / 1.5 in) across are held on upright stems among rosettes of pretty, scalloped leaves from early to late summer. This vigorous perennial will quickly form a pretty carpet that looks equally at home in a cottage-style garden, a rock garden or in gravel. It needs full sun and dislikes waterlogged soil.

  • Garden care: To prolong flowering, deadhead regularly. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring or late autumn.
