Description: An upright spreading variety with showy rich golden flowers from June until frost and fine textured dusty green foliage. A relatively low maintenance shrub, great for northern gardens, hardy, tough and adaptable to all conditions, but dislikes wet soils. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.
