Gardeners' Notes:

Although this plant is listed as great for a bog garden, I have it growing in full sun and clay soil. I am currently searching for a source for a large amount of these plants at a reasonable price. The color is absolutely beautiful and the flowers are a unique treasure. I plan to group these with Delphinium Royal Aspirations or Cimicifuga ramosa Hillside Black Beauty. This is a treasured plant in my garden.

This plant was purchased from a nursery in the Matanuska Valley, Alaska. T. europaeus has always grown well here, so I'm hoping that this orange variety does as well.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Seward, Alaska

Pagosa Springs, Colorado
