Only had this plant for a year - Zone 5 Ohio. It has preformed very well so far. Past winter was almost Spring like so I don't know how it will do long term.

Very nice attractive green foliage and bright yellow clusters of flowers.

They are in rich soil in full western exposure sun. Not sure it the rich soil is necessary. Seem to be able to undergo drought conditions.
