A wild collected selection of this unusual species with branching heads of dull orange flowers in late summer to 1.5m. Clumps of grey, pleated leaves make an attractive extra feature. Drained soil in sun.
A great foliage plant before it flowers later in the year. A good companion to blue or other warm coloured flowers.
Collected by the late Michael Wickenden of Cally Gardens.
