Perfect for growing in a container or pot

Large, single yellow blooms that will add lots of cheerful colour to a hot planting scheme. This neat and compact plant has a long and prolific flowering period from summer to autumn.

Where?

Best in a sunny spot. Ideal for a bed, border or wildlife garden where the nectar-rich flowers will attract bees and other pollinating insects.

How?

Best in well-drained soil. Add some coarse grit to the planting hole if your soil is heavy and likely to stay wet in winter. Remove the faded blooms to extend flowering.

The bright and attractive blooms make great cut flowers for an informal arrangement.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
