Why do I like these so much, well I suppose I am a sucker for flowers that create a mood – and when these ones flower, my mood is happy.


I know the plant disappears in the winter, and is a little slow to re-emerge, but that’s because it flowers in late summer, and the one I have ‘Goldstrum’ has golden yellow petals, which kind of catch the fact that the late summer sun is a bit less acid yellow and has taken on a more mellow ‘manyana’ attitude.


These plants don’t rush to set flower, so we benefit as they begin to shine just as everything else is beginning to look a little weary.  Oh and the seedheads are attractive too, a bit like small black beehives!
