Towering over other perennials, ‘Giant Pincushion’ gives you a reason to look up & smile! Bestowing height & interest atop sturdy branching stems, large 3” across soft yellow blooms bob in the wind, inviting happy bees & butterflies to sample its nectar from mid to late Summer. Awesome cut flower. To 6-7’ tall with an attractive 1’ x 3’ dense clump of mid green foliage. Composty well-drained soil. Cut it back to the ground in Fall for a swell appearance each new year. Self-sows.
