Positive Clary On Aug 4, 2011, Clary from Lewisburg, PA (Zone 6b) wrote:

The color of this variety is indeed canary yellow - a very clear lemon yellow. This has grown just as vigorously as any helenium and is now a spreading clump that stands 6' tall. The color is phenomenal with purple. Recommended!
