Long-lived perennial with evergreen, pine-like foliage and hundreds of small bright yellow flowers in late spring and summer. Hummingbird candy. This sport was discovered in England with a flower color that is quite unusual for this genus. Great on a sunny slope or rock garden. Grows to about 1' high x 2' wide. Needs good drainage in any soil and occasional summer water where dry. Prune back in March. Evergreen to -20 °F, USDA zone 5, and frost hardy in zone 4, as kindly reported by a inhabitant of climates much colder than ours.
