Plant Description

Sturdy, 2- to 3-foot tall, long-lived perennial with hundreds of 11/2-inch flowerheads on unbranched stems. Flowers rich yellow with crisp black centers. This is a no-fuss-no-muss plant. It is disease and pest resistant, can take quite a bit of drought, doesn't need staking, and flowers forever from August to the first hard frost when the birds take over and feed on the seeds. Looks great with goldenrods, blazing stars, grasses, sedums, all the asters, sunflowers, ironweed, you name it for sun, and this one goes well with it.
