I have to confess, I have an inordinate fondness for this plant.
The flowers are unusual in shape, a bright yellow color, held upright
above the foliage in terminal cymes, but not extremely ornate in
and of themselves. What I love about this plant is simply the most
arresting foliage- it has alternating rounded pinnate leaves of
an outstanding glaucous, blue-green color. Eventually becomes almost
shrub-like, creating a wonderfull soft, almost feathery texture
anywhere it is placed in your garden. It blends well with almost
everything and can be an amazing back-drop to highlight your dark
hued flowers or foliage plants, such as the beautiful new dark heuchera
cultivars that are becoming more readily available. Whoa boy. I'm
sorry, I'm rambling. But do try it.
