Including Patrinia scabiosifolia
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.
Size: 12"–18" high x 9"–12" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Patrinia gibbosa (P-1810)

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.
Size: 4' 0"–4-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
