You'll be impressed with the excellent vigor of this yellow flowered selection. It forms an upright, vase-shaped mound of attractive blue-green foliage topped with long, charcoal stems which carry the lemon yellow flowers in late spring to early summer, followed by decorative seed pods in fall. The contrast of dark stems with light flowers really pops in the landscape, delivering an excellent floral display.

  • Mine is a young plant and this is the fist year for flowers on 'Lemon Meringue'. I'm so glad I purchased it and can hardly wait for it to form a large clump. The yellow blooms simply glow and it is a great addition to my front garden.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
