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.
