Very attractive to pollinating insects, this unusual flower, native to the southeastern United States and northern Mexico has narrow, almost thread-like leaves, and opens over a very long period, right up to the first frosts, masses of bright yellow flowers.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
