Golden Holstein

For over a decade I had admired Sun Flare for its power to attract attention in a garden. Then I visited a garden in which Sun Flare was blooming far better than I imagined it could, but next to it was a tall, yellow shrub that completely stole the show. That was my first and only encounter with Golden Holstein.

It's vigorous, nicely branched, well foliaged. It does get a little mildew. But it's biggest problem is with cold. If you live where it will stay warm, can give it the water, sunlight, and air circulation it needs, and require a big plant with cool yellow flowers this is it.
