This is a superb perennial. I grew it in my Yorkshire garden many years ago and absolutely loved it. It really is stunning and highly recommended. The bracts are a wonderful chartreuse yellow colour. The stems grow one year and in the second year produce the large showy bracts. I wish I had room to grow it again.
