Why: Profuse large flowers cover this deciduous perennial from mid-summer to early fall. It is a bold, sturdy perennial that stands out in the late summer garden with dramatic daisy-like flowers and a large orange, cone-shaped center.
Where: A long flowering perennial, use it in combination with other late season delights. Its rich colors play well off of paler hues, like the fine white streaked foliage of Miscanthus sinensis ‘Morning Light’. Add it to the riot of colors in the herbaceous border. It is an excellent combination plant with hardy geraniums, tall campanulas and asters.
Size: Reaches a heghts of 3 feet with a spread of 1 feet, 6 inches.
