Bright yellow flowers on compact growth.
This tight foliage variety is very neat even through winter where its deep green foliage takes on an orange hue. The flowers on this variety are so intense it is impossible to ignore. Great for pollinating insects and ideal in the alpine rock garden and containers.
These do not need too much attention. The flowers will disappear naturally when they have finished but you can nip the old buds out.
