Brightly hued flower clusters and attractive foliage.
Its large, bright golden flowers bloom during summer in flat, plate-like compound corymbs about 4" across. These flower clusters grow atop tall stems that rise above foliage consisting of finely cut, aromatic leaves that are grey-green in colour and produce visual interest for much of the year. Butterflies can't resist the blooms, which make excellent dried or fresh-cut flowers.
