    • I planted this behind my hostas on the shady side of the yard. The yellow flowers stand out behind the hostas and cover that gap between flower bed and the trees ( the view into the neighbours yard)

    • I use them for the back boundrys of my flower beds. Excellent show of blooms in summer. Must not plant in full sun. Does really well in shaded ares. soaker hose should be used in sandy soil.
