An explosion of golden yellow flowers burst forth in mid-summer enriching the garden with color and becoming a magnet for hummingbirds and other pollinators. This clump-forming cultivar, with bright green sword-like foliage to two feet tall, is very well-mannered by not being overly aggressive as some others of its ilk.
