Gardeners' Notes:

This plant does not have a particularly pretty flower. The blossom is not huge, or ruffled. The novelty of it, is it's height, which is nice at the back, and also that it blooms late. Here in MO it always blooms in mid to late Aug. That is nice as the others are usually done by then. From a distance it is pretty. Mine blooms heavily and the stalks are strong enough to support themselves.

An excellent performer. These two-year old plants have bloomed consistently for almost two months. Flower has a very light fragrance. Scapes are well branched and held high above the foliage. Truly a garden workhorse, with great fall color. Mine are paired with Brazilian verbena, threadleaf coreopsis, and Sulphur Cosmos for a striking combination with very little effort!
