Heavy heads of glorious, bright, vivid yellow flowers, with, exotic, rather musty perfume, and rust-speckled especially in the throat, arise on shortish, stout stems. This excellent garden plant is happy with both lime and acid soils and is bone hardy and long-lived.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
