A recent introduction, this is a compact black-eyed Susan that will put on a particularly abundant display of flowers from midsummer. The yellow daisy-like flowers look luminous sitting on top of stout branching stems, which rise above the bushy mounds of lush green foliage. Standing just knee high, it is ideal for pots and containers, as well as prolonging the seasonal interest towards the front of the mixed or herbaceous border.
- Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring.
