A strappy leafed upright plant, with tall spikes of bright flowers in tones of orange and gold in spring and summer. A great garden and larger landscaping plant which has stood the test of time. The flowers attract birds, and are good for long lasting cut blooms. It grows from an underground rhizome, so once established, if the leaves suffer blackening from frost or high winds, the plant can be cut back hard to the ground and will reshoot with fresh clean growth . Likes a well drained soil, flowers best in a sunny spot. Feed with a good native fertiliser in late winter to spring.
