Undemanding and HARDY to 5 degrees F! Reaching an urn-shaped 3-5’ tall and 4-6’ across, with glossy (and spiny!) bright green leaves arching out from the center, it contributes a hefty architectural accent to the dry garden. Pups around the base. Blooming after many years, an incredible 20’ candelabra stalk flaunts clusters of bright yellow flowers. Deer resistant.
