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


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A sensation in the late summer garden, this showy perennial attracts bees and butterflies, but is rarely affected by deer or rabbits, so is perfect for both city and country gardens. Emerging from lime green buds, the bright yellow flowers open upwards from the base of the spike over several weeks, so the display is relatively long-lived. Plant this with hot colours like orange and red, as well as contrasting purples.

  • Garden care: In autumn remove and compost the faded, flower spikes and apply a deep, dry mulch around the crown of the plant. Divide and re-plant overcrowded colonies in spring.
