Amazement in a vase! A must-have for bouquets, these large, feathery, golden-yellow to scarlet plumes stand out on long, straight stems and attract pollinators. In the garden, the multi-branching plants are noted for their exceptionally beautiful foliage, and along with height, are perfect for the back of the flower bed. Plants handle heat with ease and are fairly drought tolerant. Also known as Prince of Wales feather.

The colors were outstanding, very vibrant. They lacked size, as none were giants. Still, made a great cutflower.

First year growing these. Absolutely beautiful and Tall! Bees love them in the late fall season with hardly anything blooming.

I grew these in three pots, which is probably not a best practice, but they still turned out beautiful. Rich yellows, purples, and reds and such a visually interesting plant! I was surprised how much the bees liked them. What's been almost more fun is the oodles of junco birds that have been eating the seeds for about a month. I highly recommend.
