Long spurred flowers of light greenish yellow on airy stems to 60cm in spring. Striking evergreen foliage in a light green shade. Don't cut back the foliage before flowering.
Clumps of large leaves on wiry stems make quite a show even without the flowers that will appear in late April and May. Best grown in good soil that doesn't dry out in shade.
