This striking plant produces several, tall, strong, impressive, almost bamboo-like, repeatedly dividing stems, carrying large umbels of bright yellow flowers, much loved by butterflies and bees. These later transform into architectural sprays of exceptionally attractive, very large, flat, golden seeds making this a superb specimen plant.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
