Yellow flowers in late spring into summer. Feathery gray-green foliage. Upright clumping form. Best in full sun, plants in part shade may be floppy. Deadhead to encourage blooming. Can be cut back to the basal leaves after flowering to tidy the plant and encourage new foliage. Likes well-drained soil but will otherwise tolerate pool soils. Tolerates humid summers.

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Evergreen in April 2011 and planted it in the berm. It has performed well and was slightly bushier in the second spring.
