This plant is a handsome architectural specimen for the garden, as well as being an easy care plant. Huge brown buds open into large 10 cm attractive yellow flowers which look somewhat like those of a thistle, in mid summer. The blooms are attractive to butterflies and perform very well as a cut flower.
The plant is quite hardy and will withstand drought and some neglect and still produce its handsome flowers each summer for you. It is a great plant for the back border or for a place where you need an easy care plant , which will also show off a little in summer.
