This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The unusually coloured flowerheads consist of a ring of ray florets, which are irregularly blotched with shades of yellow orange or red, radiating from a prominent brown central cone. Ideal for hot themed borders.

  • Garden care: Support with bamboo canes or link stakes well before the flowers appear. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring every two to three years.
