This was the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year for 2003. It's great because it's beautiful, growing up to 3 feet tall with a 4-5 inch flower head. It flowers from summer to fall if deadheaded occasionally, the flower stalks stand up in hard summer rains, it is great for northern as well as southern gardeners, and the flowers make great cut flowers. Give it full sun and average soil. This one is very prolific and very hardy here. It grows vigorously and multiplies rapidly. (Sunlight Gardens)
