Lush clumps of tropical-looking finely toothed green foliage produce clusters of golden yellow flowers in summer to 45cm. Drained but not dry soil in sun or light shade.

Yellow flowers are often less popular but this choice plant is well worth growing , even if only for the bright green, rather large leaves.

Best grown in a good soil in at least some shade here in East Anglia but would be fine in more sun in cooler parts of the country.

From the Azores.
