Sunshiney, translucent golden-yellow blooms, up to 4” wide will add a splash of late-Winter through Spring cheer to any sunny spot in mild Winter gardens when planted out in Fall/Winter. Keep the flower fest going strong by deadheading spent blooms, or even better, bring the blooms inside for beauteous bouquets. Cut flowers before the buds open & make sure to singe the stem ends to extend life in a vase. Growing to 12” high & 12-18” wide, it’s a great candidate for a container. Be warned that heat & humidity are its biggest foes. While technically a short-lived perennial, it’s typically planted as a self-sowing annual.
