We have this bold beauty planted in large clumps along our veranda and sun gardens at Fordhook Farm. Every new visitor that walks through invariably asks, What is that? I want it! The ultimate low-maintenance showstopper, with stalks that quickly shoot to 8 feet and launch rockets of lemon yellow 2-inch blooms for three solid months. Just plant in full sun and stand back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a WOW plant. I had know idea that it would grow so tall with beautiful yellow daisies/sunflowers on the plant. It makes a great fence barrier for those peepers. The up keep is nothing , just plant & water. The bees & butterflies love it & so do I since I ordered more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many blooms! I didn't think this plant survived with animals nibbling every leaf off and leaving nothing but a tiny stem sticking out of the ground. I'm happy to say it grew by leaps and bounds and exceeded my expectations. It is huge, 6-7 ft tall and at least 3 ft wide with two big stalks that produced a ton of flowers that the bees seem to love. It got knocked down by a terrible storm and had to be staked but still thriving and producing flowers.
