One of the most amazing perennials I have ever seen or grown. It takes a while to become established, but once it settles in it becomes graceful, charming and elegant, much more so than photos could ever reveal. It blooms from late summer through fall with loose "see through" panicles of electric chartreuse-golden yellow, an unusual color that looks stunning at all times of day. It attracts a nice variety of pollinators as well. It gently reseeds when happy, but never to the point of becoming a pest. Truly one of the unsung heroes of the late summer/ early autumn garden!
