Towering over other perennials, ‘Giant Pincushion’ gives you a reason to look up and smile! Bestowing height and interest atop sturdy branching stems, large 3” across soft yellow blooms bob in the wind, inviting happy bees and butterflies to sample its nectar from mid to late Summer. Awesome cut flower. To 4-6’ 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.
