Very bright and showy. Only drawback I have is that spent flowers seem to really show on this variety. Otherwise, it blooms late spring til fall.

Another recent US introduction, this plant has a similar growth habit to 'Dakota Goldrush' but the flowers are more golden-yellow. Excellent hardiness, growth form and floral appeal.
