The plants grow up to 12 inches tall and about the same in width. Can over winter in warmer areas, or if mulched heavily with a dry mulch. The plants bloom the second year with small flowers that are mustard-yellow, produced in corymbs. Shear or pinch back plants if they become leggy. Tolerant of many soils, prefers full sun and a well-drained location in the border or a pot. A colorful foil between bright bedding plants like annual salvias and snapdragons. Often used as an edging or border plant.
