An easy-going dwarf Patrinia, this compact Japanese denizen serves a generous helping of cheery petite yellow flowers all summer long. The bright blooms are held in loose clusters, staged well above pinnately cut broad toothed leaves that shape a tidy rounded deep green clump. Undaunted by hot humid weather and appreciative of rich moderately moist soil, P. gibbosa is a showy contender for mixed borders or cottage gardens, where it keeps our interest sparked with late season chartreuse flower bracts.

This Korean native is long and slender, like a camel’s neck. Its basal mound of coarse green leaves gives way to thin, branching stems, which hold fragrant sprays of tiny, golden yellow flowers that are great for cutting. The leaves display reddish tints in autumn.
