Bees Sunset

Bees Sunset

Impressive vertical spikes of golden orange flowers from May to July, become brighter and then yellow as they age, and are held on harmoniously coppery green stems. The flower heads look a little disorganised but are bright and prolific. Happiest in deep, rich soil in full sun and with good winter drainage. Named for Bees Nursery, who financed the plant hunting trips of George Forrest and Frank Kingdon-Ward. 75-120cm (30-48in).
