Color: YELLOW Bloom Time: AUG-SEP Height: 12-20"
More compact, neater in appearance, and more well-behaved than the species; a great addition to the late-season landscape!
Small rounded leaves plus sprays of tiny golden yellow flowers which bloom late summer into early fall in dense plume-like panicles appearing on stiff multi-branched stems. Slow spread over time to 30” wide or more. Rosettes of toothed, heart-shaped foliage form an attractive, low-growing, mat-like cover when plants are not in flower.
Winner of the Internationale Stauden-Union’s Award for outstanding new plant in Switzerland in 1994. Paired with Symphyotrichum oblongifolium (Fragrant Aster), a pale blue Plains-Prairie native that blooms at the same time, bees and butterflies find it very enticing!
